Welcome to the Aurora Public Schools Suicide Risk Assessment Website.
You will find everything you need to complete a suicide risk assessment including resources to enhance your practice.
All of the suicide risk assessment forms (Non-Acute, Acute, Safety Support Plan, School Re-Entry) are meant to be filled out electronically. After you submit each part, you will be emailed a confirmation email, PDF of the form you completed, and directions to proceed to the next section.
Below you will find information intended to help guide you through this process.
Suicide Risk Assessment Forms

Children's Hospital: 720-777-4715 -> Select Option 3 -> Select Option 2
**Required for All SRA's**
This is the documentation of the plan discussed with the student and/or family that will help the student stay safe when they experience suicidal thoughts.
SRA Note Catchers
These note catchers are designed to help providers focus on the intervention with a student. If there is any additional tools that could be helpful in your intervention please let us know.
Templates for Safety Support Plans:
Safety Support Plans are completed to document the steps the school is doing to with the student and family to ensure safety. The actual plans that are shared with the student to remind what steps can be taken to keep themselves safe have no required format. These plans should be individualized to meet the students needs and abilities. Below are templates of examples that can be used.

Substance Use Resources
"Suicide, addiction, and depression have a very close and interconnected relationship. More than 90% of people who fall victim to suicide suffer from depression, have a substance use disorder (SUD), or both."
"Of all the factors associated with suicide, only depression (66% of people who fall victim to suicide are dealing with depression at the time) is more closely correlated than substance abuse. Individuals with a substance use disorder are nearly 6 times as likely to attempt suicide at some point in their life."
