Opportunities to study response burden of different types is limited. We report mixed mode survey results of a randomized control longitudinal study of 1000 patients positive for Bipolar Disorder or PTSD. Patients with elevated risk for suicide ideation/intent received 12-month mental health services. Health outcomes are assessed at three points-baseline, 6-months, 12-months.For RCTs, there is a strong need for maintaining survey responses across waves to effectively measure outcomes. The task of maintaining response rates can be problematic with the impact of response burden and needing to mitigate burdens of survey length, longer-term burden of respondents knowing they have to be surveyed in the future, and increased awareness, risk, and reluctance of knowing sensitive questions can trigger emotional distress. We provide results of methods, suicide conditions, outcomes for novel suicide interventions, and outcomes of mixed survey mode implementation. Safety planning included taking immediate action to ensure safety. There are too few studies documenting the logistics of carrying out suicide protocols across mixed mode surveys of patients with complex psychiatric disorders.
