The risk for suicide and suicide attempts among people with schizophrenia is increased, especially during the transition from inpatient to outpatient treatment. The Coping Long-Term with Active Suicide Program (CLASP) is an intervention that has helped people with suicide risk and other mental health conditions with the transition. With adaptation, CLASP may be helpful to people with schizophrenia.
