Abstract: VA authority for this data collection is found under 38 U.S.C., Part I, Chapter 5, Section 527, which authorizes the collection of data that will allow measurement and evaluation of VA Programs, the goal of which is improved health care for veterans. The information will be used to accomplish three aims: (1) Collect baseline data on the knowledge and attitudes of adult US citizens living in specified communities about veterans, veteran suicide, and resources available to veterans to reduce suicide, prior to the implementation of suicide prevention programs; (2) collect follow-up data in the same communities to assess whether those knowledge and attitudes have changed over time; and (3) determine whether the programs and policies implemented by a community resulted in positive change in knowledge and attitudes. The data will be utilized by the Office of Mental Health and Suicide Prevention in VA Central Office to measure the return on investment of significant resources that have been invested to support communities in their efforts to reduce veteran suicide. Specifically, the Community-Based Interventions (CBI) arm of VA’s ‘‘Suicide Prevention 2.0’’ (SP2.0) program has launched two different initiatives whose goals are to increase the successful implementation of best practices to prevent veteran suicide in local communities. The data will allow PO 00000 Frm 00147 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 VA to measure a baseline level of expected outcomes, follow-up levels, and explore the role of new programs in any changes, as well as inform program planning and evaluation. In addition, the data collected will be used by State teams that are engaged in the Governor’s Challenge (GC) initiative. GC is one of the initiatives supported by SP2.0 and is structured so that State teams are provided training and technical assistance by VA to expand their efforts to implement suicide prevention programs in their State. This data collection will assist the State teams to assess the effects of their new programming or policies. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
