@ a Glance
Find a quick and thorough glance at VISN 19 MIRECC; what we do and who we are!
A goal of VISN 19 MIRECC is to become closer to our regional community. To this end we are collecting and posting community events that promote Veteran health and well-being.
The mission of the VISN 19 MIRECC (Mental Illness Research, Education and Clinical Center) is to study suicide with the goal of reducing suicidal ideation and behaviors in the Veteran population. Towards this end, the work of the VISN 19 MIRECC is focused on promising clinical interventions, as well as the cognitive and neurobiological underpinnings of suicidal thoughts and behaviors that may lead to innovative prevention strategies.
The vision of the VISN 19 MIRECC is: Veterans, their families, and the VHA will have increased information and options to make health decisions aimed at decreasing suicide risk.
If travel restrictions or scheduling conflicts prevented you from attending last year’s AAS conference (2013), you may still access select presentations online. VA employees may view virtual presentations on key topics directly related to active military, Veterans and comprehensive suicide prevention.
Registration is free (though you must be a VA employee). And you can earn CE credits.
