The Veterans Administration

To fulfill President Lincoln's promise: "To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan" by serving and honoring the men and women who are America's Veterans.

Rocky Mountain MIRECC

The mission of the Rocky Mountain MIRECC is to study suicide with the goal of reducing suicidal ideation and behaviors in the Veteran population.

Towards this end, the work of the Rocky Mountain MIRECC is focused on promising clinical interventions, as well as the cognitive and neurobiological underpinnings of suicidal thoughts and behaviors that may lead to innovative prevention strategies.

Please visit our website — to learn more about our Veteran Suicide Prevention efforts. You may also download or order printed versions of these guides and other educational resources for Veterans and their families, healthcare providers and the community.
