Rocky Mountain MIRECC for Veteran Suicide Prevention: Recruitment
To fulfill its mission of Veteran suicide prevention, the Rocky Mountain MIRECC for Suicide Prevention researches topics that can impact Veterans’ mental wellbeing. Our research studies aim to better understand and develop interventions for conditions such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), trauma, stress, and suicidal thoughts and behaviors. 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.
