VA Center for Clinical Management Research, a VA HSR&D Center of Excellence
|Managing Mental Health Conditions
|Our Center has developed innovative programs for helping patients with serious mental illness, including those who have depression, alcohol and drug misuse problems, or chronic medical diagnoses. Our research develops new care models to ensure that these vulnerable Veterans receive evidence-based treatments to help them live productive lives. Ongoing projects include:
- A program that helps those with both substance use disorders and chronic pain to manage these problems without misusing drugs or alcohol.
- A program to identify Veterans with mental illness who are at highest risk for suicide, and ways to intervene to prevent suicide.
