Study Participation

Participation in this study is by invitation only to ensure that we receive input from a representative and diverse group of Veterans. We are especially interested in hearing from Veterans who have not been well-represented in previous research studies, such as women and Veterans not currently using VHA services. Regardless of whether you have ever experienced mental health concerns, suicidal thoughts, or have sought mental health care or VHA services, please consider participating in this survey to help other Veterans.

We value your trust and prioritize the security, confidentiality, and privacy of all information that you share with us; any information you share for this study is confidential and will not impact your ability to receive VA services or benefits.


Survey invitations are being sent to Veterans ages 18-89 across the U.S., including women and men who:

  1. Used VHA services of any kind in the past year
  2. previously used VHA services, but not in the past year
  3. never used any VHA care

This one-time survey is estimated to take 30-60 minutes to complete, on average, and will be offered online and by mail.

If you have been invited to participate and would like to participate by mail instead of online, please call our study coordinator, Eve Casiano, at 720-723-3522 to request a paper survey - with image of one veteran on their computer and another smiling veteran


Some Veterans who participate in this survey will also be eligible to participate in a telephone interview about their preferences for seeking help, barriers to help-seeking, and experiences when suicidal.

: If you participated in the survey and would be willing to participate in a 1-hour phone interview with us, please call our study coordinator, Eve Casiano, at 720-723-3522, for scheduling - with image of one veteran on the phone and another veteran.

If you have any questions about participating, please call our Research Coordinator, Evelyn (Eve) Casiano, at 720-723-3522.
