    New tools to help providers assess and treat potentially suicidal patients are available thanks to a collaboration between the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

    The tools are based on VA and Defense Department clinical practice guidelines issued last year. The tools integrate the latest evidence-based practices into recommendations on warning signs, protective factors, safety planning and effective treatments.
