If you know a Veteran who has died by suicide or non-natural causes in the last 24 months, please consider joining the fight against suicide by taking part in Operation Deep Dive. It is a community-based, military Veteran, suicide prevention study taking place in 14 states across the country, including North Carolina. The four-year study is a partnership between America’s Warrior Partnership and researchers from the University of Alabama that is funded by a grant from the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation.

The goal of Operation Deep Dive is to identify community factors that can develop an upstream approach to enhancing programs that improve Veterans’ quality of life and reduce risk factors associated with Veteran suicide and non-natural deaths.

Participant requirements:

-Must be 18 or older

-A relative, loved one, friend or co-worker to a deceased Veteran who has died by suicide or from non-natural causes within the last 24 months

-Located within one of the 14 participating states

-Participant and Veteran must have lived in the same community (metropolitan statistical area) prior to the Veterans’ death
