Program Description

Applications are currently being accepted for the VISN 19 MIRECC VA Advanced Fellowship Program in Mental Illness Research and Treatment, which is housed at the Salt Lake City MIRECC. This is a two-year position.  The mission of the VISN 19 MIRECC is to study suicide with the goal of reducing suicidality in the veteran population. To carry out this mission, members of the VISN 19 MIRECC: 1) focus on cognitive and neurobiological underpinnings that may contribute to suicidality; 2) develop evidence-based educational and clinical materials to identify and optimally treat veterans who are suicidal; 3) provide consultation regarding assessment and treatment planning for highly suicidal veterans; 4) mentor researchers in the area of suicidology; and 5) collaborate with others in the study and treatment of veterans who are at risk of suicide. There is an emphasis on the neurobiology of individuals with severe psychiatric disorders who are at risk for suicide.
