Inside the Research
Question: Is an app for acute suicide risk among adolescents administered by their primary care doctor feasible and effective?
Strategy: Primary care physicians will be trained to use Guide2Brite (G2B), an app to assess and manage acute suicide risk. Forty teens with acute suicidal ideation will be administered G2B by their primary care physician and interviewed about suicidal ideation and behavior six weeks later.
Impact: An easily administered and disseminated low-cost intervention for teens.
