Abstract : The primary aim of the proposed project is to develop cognitive and behavioral markers of suicide risk and to evaluate the predictive utility of these markers over a one year period. We propose to achieve these aims by: (a) collecting cognitive and behavioral data from Reserve component soldiers and their romantic partners in both our research laboratory and participants homes; (b) processing these data using computer algorithms developed specifically for this study; and (c) testing the predictive accuracy of these markers using follow-up data collected from study participants over 12 months. Data collection is still in progress. There are no research findings to report at this this.
