    1. Hi Agnes,

      You’re welcome.

      The SLAP acronym is used to recall key features of evaluating a client’s suicide plan. S = Specificity of the Plan. L = Lethality. A = Availability of the means. P = Proximity of social support.

      Have a great day.


  2. Thank you SO MUCH John for sharing your work. I will certainly inform our practice. May i ask, what is the SLAP plan?
