APPENDIX 2. RISK ASSESSMENT

When assessing a Koori client for safety issues the following guidelines will be useful to the clinician and should be utilised. It is essential for the 'assessor to recognise that if a Koori person expresses suicidal intent they are serious and should never be considered to be behaving in a manipulative fashion.

Risk Factors

  • Recent deaths in the client's extended family or friend network;

  • Recent suicides in family or friend network;

  • Recent relationship breakdown or conflict;

  • History of suicide in extended family or friend network;

  • History of past suicidal behaviour;

  • Drug and/or alcohol abuse history;

  • Current Intoxication Drugs/alcohol;

  • Family, friends, or client expressing concerns re: safety;

  • Recent incarceration or legal difficulties;

  • Withdrawn or avoidant presentation. That is if the Koori person makes limited eye contact, is unable or
    unwilling to respond verbally, or is unable or unwilling to engage in the assessment process.
