Suicidality

Suicide is a significant concern for the U.S. Military and Veteran Administration, and understanding and trying to prevent suicide is a major priority. Drs. Melissa Amick and Beeta Homaifar have begun a new study through the TRACTS Center that is examining the relationship between suicidal thoughts and brain function, memory, attention, and problem solving strategies in OEF/OIF/OND Veterans. This research aims to learn more about those times when Veterans may be most at risk for suicide, and how to best prevent and reduce that risk. This study is funded by the Military Suicide Research Consortium, and collaborates with Investigators and suicide experts at the Denver VA.
