Extract

To the Editor As clinicians and researchers focused on youth suicide, we read with interest the report by Horowitz et al1 on the Ask Suicide-Screening Questions (ASQ). This study examined the psychometric development of a brief suicide screening in the pediatric emergency department. Despite the promising findings, we would like to offer a word of caution to others further pursuing this line of work.
