Research Projects In Progress

The MSRC Research Program runs cutting-edge empirical studies to further the knowledge base on topics such as risk assessment, treatment, and prevention, as they pertain to suicidal behavior in the military.

MSRC would like to congratulate the following research teams who received funding to support these efforts in intervention, prevention, and treatment of suicide in the military. We look forward to our partnership with these experts and their esteemed colleagues.
