  • Veterans participated in electronic surveys for the Veterans’ Suicide Prevention Project.
  • The project used virtual reality and A.I. technology to identify previous head injuries.

Veterans from various regions completed surveys for the Veterans’ Suicide Prevention Project, hosted by Arkansas State University’s Masters of Athletic Training Program. The project, led by Dr. Scott Bruce, aims to identify predictors of mental health and suicide ideation in military veterans. Using advanced technology, they assessed reaction times to determine if individuals had previous head injuries. The collected data will be used for research purposes and will not be shared with external organizations or government entities. The project’s findings can potentially help reduce the alarming rate of veteran suicides in the United States.
