The Roadmap will include a National Research Strategy to advance efforts to improve quality of life and reduce the rate of suicide among veterans by better coordinating research within and beyond the Federal government, and enhancing the integration of research across the social, behavioral, and biological determinants of wellness and brain health. We aim to understand the full spectrum of factors influencing veteran suicide. Efforts are needed that would allow early detection of trauma in the brains of living people and improve our understanding and ability to prevent conditions or factors that contribute to suicide. We aim to incorporate public health approaches that target prevention strategies and address intervention for individuals, communities, and the broader population. Reducing the rate of suicide in the veteran population will require an innovative, concerted approach to public health, with wide stakeholder input. The Federal government alone cannot address these challenges; therefore, we seek to involve the Nation’s full research and development (R&D) ecosystem, and collaborate with state, local, territorial, and tribal governments, as well as community members, industry, non-profit organizations, and academic institutions to ensure that veterans have access to effective suicide prevention services. Our collective efforts begin with the common understanding that suicide is preventable, and that prevention requires ongoing support prior to and beyond intervention at the point of crisis. To end veteran suicide, we must develop a holistic understanding of the underlying factors that determine the overall health and well-being of our Nation’s veterans. The National Research Strategy shall include milestones and metrics designed to: i. Improve our ability to identify individual veterans and groups of veterans at greater risk of suicide; ii. Develop and improve individual interventions that increase overall veteran quality of life and decrease the veteran suicide rate; iii. Develop strategies to better ensure the latest research discoveries are translated into practical applications and implemented quickly; iv. Establish relevant data-sharing protocols across Federal agencies that align with community collaborators; VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:30 Jun 20, 2019 Jkt 247001 v. Draw upon technology to capture and use health data from non-clinical settings to advance behavioral and mental health research to the extent practicable; vi. Improve coordination among research efforts, prevent unnecessarily duplicative efforts, identify barriers to or gaps in research, and facilitate opportunities for improved consolidation, integration, and alignment; and vii. Develop public-private collaboration models to foster innovative and effective research that accelerates these efforts. Further Instructions: All public comments are welcome and should be submitted by July 15, 2019 in order to ensure they are considered in the National Research Strategy. Responses may be submitted online at https:// www.research.va.gov/PREVENTS/. Response to this RFI is voluntary, and respondents need not reply to all questions. Each individual or institution is requested to submit only one response, and to indicate whether it is an individual or organizational response. Comments containing references, studies, research, and other empirical data that are not widely published should include copies or electronic links of the referenced materials. Comments containing profanity, vulgarity, threats, or other inappropriate language or content will not be considered. All submissions, including attachments and other supporting materials, will become part of the public record and are subject to public disclosure.

services or provide outreach? If so, how? How are the beneficiaries 
with social risk identified?
    18. Are there especially promising strategies for improving care of
