Collaborators for Multi-site Projects

SPRINT has a list of researchers and facilities interested in potentially collaborating on suicide prevention research projects. SPRINT encourages you can contact us if you would like information on potential collaborators, or to volunteer your site. We will provide this list to investigators whom may contact you to discuss collaboration opportunities. We are particularly interested in identifying potential sites from the Midwest and South, but all potential sites are welcome!

If your facility/program would be potentially interested in participating as a site for a multi-site suicide prevention research project, or if you would like access to the existing list, please email suicidepreventionres@va.gov.
