Crisis Line Facilitation
Behavioral: Crisis Line Facilitation (CLF)
This single session therapist-delivered intervention addresses Veterans' perceived barriers and facilitators of crisis line use during periods of suicidal crisis. The CLF session culminates with the Veteran calling the Crisis Line with the therapist in the room as a way for the Veteran to practice the logistics of making the call and to have direct experiences that may counter any negative beliefs about Crisis Line use.

- Use of the Veterans Crisis Line [ Time Frame: use of the line over 1-year follow-up ]The primary data source for use of the Veterans Crisis Line will be participant medical records, collected through chart audits/abstraction. Self-report and interview questions will also assess for use of the Veterans Crisis Line and any other Crisis Line services.
- Service utilization [ Time Frame: change in service utilization over 1-year follow-up ]The primary data source for mental health treatment services will be participant medical records, collected through chart audits/abstraction. Additional questions about treatment utilization will be based on modified items from the Treatment Services Review. Information collected on treatment utilization may include whether a session was scheduled/attended, the number of sessions attended, type and location of provider (primary care doc, therapist, etc.), and type of treatment received (therapy vs. medications).
- Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]The Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) is a semi-structured interview that is mandated for use in medication trials by the Federal Drug Administration and has been uniquely recommended as a standalone measure of change in suicidal thoughts and behavior over time. The investigators will use the C-SSRS to measure suicide attempts and other suicidal behaviors, including "preparatory behavior", within the follow-up period.
