SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00118 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 Abstract: VA is taking decisive action to prevent Veteran death by suicide. The Department will proactively partner with Veterans and their families; federal, state, local, and tribal governments; community organizations; and other stakeholders to reach out, engender trust, reduce stigma, and encourage our Nation’s heroes to apply for the benefits and services they have earned. VA must also reach out to Veterans who are experiencing mental health crises and provide confident and trustworthy counseling. To be successful, the Department must take systematic steps when offering assistance with programs, services, and benefits. Outreach activities must be research-based, datadriven, audience targeted, resultsoriented, and governed by the basic tenets of effective communication and strategic outreach. To prevent suicide and save one life at a time, 18 lives per day, the Department must act now and reach out to these populations and their influencers; however, to truly make a difference, it can’t just reach out, VA must employ sound and proven outreach strategies which are evidencebased and include messaging which has been tested and focused for specific audiences. To achieve these steps, the Department will conduct focus groups with Veterans and their families, community organizations, and other important and influential stakeholders. Therefore, the Veterans Health Administration respectfully requests an emergency OMB clearance to perform focus group activities and collect information to support outreach efforts in reaching this critical audience and the people who they trust. Affected Public: Individuals and households. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 150 hours. Estimated Average Burden per Respondent: 90 minutes. Frequency of Response: One time. Estimated Number of Respondents: 100. Dated: January 7, 2011. By direction of the Secretary. Denise McLamb, Program Analyst Director, Enterprise Records Service.
