  1. Outcomes without clinically meaningful operational points are not shown (Crisis Intervention & 1:1 Observation). Actual precision could be more than minimum precision. TP True Positive, FP False Positive, TN True negative, FN False Negative, Sensitivity = TP/(TP+ FN), Specificity = TN/(TN + FP), Positive Predictive Value = TP/(TP + FP), Negative Predictive Value = TN/(TN + FN), Prevalence = (TP + FN)/(TP + FP + TN + FN), Detection Prevalence = (TP + FP)/(TP + FP + TN + FN), Balanced Accuracy = (Sensitivity+Specificity)/2
