About the ASPIRE Lab

The Advancing Suicide PreventIon for undeRserved vEterans (ASPIRE) Lab at the VA Rocky Mountain Mental Illness Research, Education, and Clinical Center for Veteran Suicide Prevention is led by Dr. Lindsey Monteith, Dr. Claire Hoffmire, and Dr. Ryan Holliday. We utilize mixed-methods approaches to improve suicide prevention for Veterans. These methods include clinical, epidemiological and public health approaches (e.g., surveys, cohort studies, qualitative interviews, focus groups, and big data analysis).

The mission of the ASPIRE Lab is to reach Veterans who historically have been underrepresented or underserved. This currently includes an emphasis on the Veterans who are:

  • Not engaged in VA healthcare
  • Racial & Ethnic Minorities
  • Women
  • Unstably housed
  • Justice system involved
  • Survivors of interpersonal violence (e.g., military sexual trauma)
