OPERATION DEEP DIVE
America’s Warrior Partnership, University of Alabama researchers and the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation have partnered on a four-year research study that will examine the factors and potential causes involved in suicides and early mortality due to self-harm among military veterans.
OBJECTIVE & SCOPE
Operation Deep Dive will identify the individual, organizational, and community risk factors that lead to suicide within veteran communities and help guide the development of programs to prevent and reduce self-harm among veterans.
This is a first-of-its-kind research collaboration focused on identifying what we do not already know about suicide among veterans, particularly the impact of community environments, an area that has been absent from past research.
The utlimate goal of Operation Deep Dive is to develop a methodology that any community can implement to identify the unique risk factors of suicide within their area.
