Largest Study of Suicide and Mental Health in Military to be Led

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) announced at a press conference on July 17 that an interdisciplinary team of four research institutions will carry out the largest study of suicide and mental health among military personnel ever undertaken. To better identify risk and protective factors for suicide and provide a scientific base for more effective and practical interventions, NIMH and the Army signed a memorandum of agreement authorizing NIMH to undertake the investigation with the support of $50 million in Army funding.
