VA Patient Safety Center of Inquiry - Suicide Prevention Collaborative (PSCI-SPC)

The VA Patient Safety Center of Inquiry - Suicide Prevention Collaborative (PSCI-SPC) serves as a national clinical innovation and dissemination center for best practices in suicide prevention for Veterans who receive care in the community. The center develops and tests projects to support suicide prevention through collaboration between community organizations, health care organizations, and the VA. Current projects include VA/community Veteran suicide prevention learning collaboratives, and an intensive case management program for Veterans at risk for suicide who are enrolled in VA community care.

Learning Collaboratives for Veteran Suicide Prevention

Learning collaboratives are interventions designed to improve Veteran suicide prevention programming within an organization, as well as relationships between organizations, including the VA. Learning collaborative activities focus on: (a) providing technical assistance and support in implementing a suicide prevention program within the organization; (b) building relationships and collaborations between the VA and community organizations to support Veteran suicide prevention; (c) developing and supporting coordinated relationships between community organizations to strengthen the community suicide prevention safety net.

Intensive case management

Veterans at risk for suicide may benefit from additional support and resources that address root causes that contribute to their suicidal ideation. Intensive case management aims to address needs by implementing a combination of Brief Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for suicide prevention adapted from Bryan & Rudd (2018), and intensive case management. This provides Veterans with the tools necessary to manage suicidal ideation as well as interventions to ensure they are connected to the appropriate psychosocial resources in their communities.
