Title; Associated Form; and OMB Number: An Outcome Evaluation of the SOS Suicide Prevention Program; OMB Control Number 0720–TBD. Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement is necessary to evaluate the effectiveness of the SOS Suicide Prevention Program which is used as suicide prevention programming in middle and high schools throughout the country. The surveys are completed in school and then returned to the University of Connecticut’s Institute for Public Health Research for analysis. Affected Public: Middle and high school students in state schools. Annual Burden Hours: 840. Number of Respondents: 840. Responses per Respondent: 2. Average Burden per Response: 30 minutes. Frequency: Once. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Summary of Information Collection Respondents are middle and high school students who are receiving the SOS Suicide Prevention Program in their schools. The SOS Program is a video-based educational program used by middle and high schools throughout the country in order to educate students about the signs and symptoms of depression and suicidality. An Outcome Evaluation of the SOS Suicide Prevention Program will assess the degree to which the SOS program fosters greater knowledge of and more adaptive attitudes toward depression and suicide, increases rates of helpseeking, and reduces rates of suicidal ideation and suicide attempts. This program evaluation will survey middle and high school students in grades 6–12 in schools that administer the SOS program. All schools will be located near military bases and have high proportions of students with parents or caretakers in the military. Surveys will be administered to students at two points in time, once before receipt of the SOS program and once about 3 months after receipt of the program. A screening form is also included as a part of the program. The goal is to have approximately 840 civilian students in up to 25 schools. This evaluation will allow school officials to make evidence based decisions regarding programming in their schools. Without this evaluation we risk delivering ineffective programming to students.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Summary of Information Collection

    The Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP) offers 
prospective military physicians, dentists, nurse practitioners, 
optometrists, psychologists, and veterinarians a paid medical education 
in exchange for service as a commissioned medical department officer. 
Programs are available in the United States Army, the United States 
Navy, and the United States Air Force (AFHPSP).
    Created under authority of the Uniformed Services Health 
Professions Revitalization Act of 1972, the HPSP is the primary source 
of trained healthcare professionals entering the United States Armed 
Forces. Subject to eligibility for a commission (such as U.S. 
citizenship, physical and academic qualifications, etc.), scholarship 
``selectees'' are commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army 
Reserve or the U.S. Air Force Reserve, or ensigns in the U.S. Navy 
Reserve. The selectees are then placed on inactive reserve status 
during their medical training.
    Prospective students compete for scholarships that cover some or 
all of the medical school years. The Air Force offers three- and four-
year scholarships, and the Army offers one- to four-year scholarships. 
While on scholarship, the financial expenses of tuition, fees, a 
monthly stipend, and mandatory books and equipment are paid by the 
student's sponsoring service.
    As inactive reserve officers, the students are required to serve 45 
days of active duty for training (ADT) each fiscal year. While on 
active duty, they receive the same rights, privileges, and pay, and are 
subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, as any other active-
duty officer. For the first two years of training, this duty is 
sometimes spent attending an officer basic course/school (Army, Navy, 
Air Force) or executing ``School Orders'' (participating in clinical 
training) at the student's university. For the 3rd and 4th years, the 
student will often carry out elective clinical rotations at a military 
hospital.
    Upon graduation, the student is promoted to the rank of captain in 
the Army and Air Force, or lieutenant in the Navy, and is placed on 
active duty for residency in a military or civilian hospital. In 
general, Army and Air Force medical residents are allowed to complete 
their residencies before proceeding to their first assignments, while 
Navy personnel complete an internship and then serve as a general 
medical officer (GMO), with the option of completing a residency 
following their GMO tour.
    The incurred service obligation is generally one-for-one for every 
service-paid year of schooling, with a minimum of two years for 
physicians and three years for other specialties. Additional time 
required for certain postgraduate programs, such as lengthy 
residencies, can result in longer service obligations. Fulfillment of 
the obligation begins only after postgraduate training is completed. 
For Navy officers, time spent as a GMO is credited towards the service 
obligation.
    This collection will consolidate and standardize requirements 
across the Services for the collection and reporting of needed 
information as it pertains to the enrollee.
