The mission of the Rocky Mountain MIRECC is to study suicide with the goal of reducing suicidal ideation and behaviors in the Veteran population. Suicide prevention research takes place on a continuum from understanding to screening & assessment to treatment. Rocky Mountain MIRECC is engaged in over 50 research projects at any given moment.
Rocky Mountain MIRECC endeavors to disseminate useful information about suicide prevention in ways that are accessible to Veterans and the community at large, and evaluate strategies to translate research-informed practices into everyday care. 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.
