Research Recruitment


Our research studies aim to better understand and develop interventions for suicidal thoughts and behaviors and associated conditions such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), trauma and stress. We hope that these studies will lead to new treatment and prevention strategies to improve care for Veterans.

There are opportunities for you to participate in these research studies. Some studies are just one visit, while others occur over multiple visits. All studies provide compensation for your time.
