- Suicidal Ideation Intensity as Measured by the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) Intensity Subscale. [ Time Frame: Pre-treatment, after treatment which was an average of 16 days, and through follow up, an average of 3 months post-treatment ]The CSSRS intensity subscale measures frequency, duration, controllability, deterrents, and reasons for suicidal ideation. The scale ranges from 2-25 with higher scores indicating more severe suicidal ideation.
