Abstract: VA's top priority is the prevention of Veterans suicide. It is imperative to reach these at-risk populations with proactive and trust-worthy communications and focused and effective outreach activities. As a part of this outreach, VA will collect information from Veterans, primary care providers and families of veterans. Data collected on the surveys will be used to better understand Veterans and their families' awareness of VA's suicide prevention and mental health support services. In addition, the surveys will help gauge how Veterans view the need for and willingness to accept help when in crises or contemplating suicide.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
