Rocky Mountain MIRECC for Veteran Suicide Prevention

Updated: 13 February 2018

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.
