We propose a randomized controlled clinical trial of 1,200 military service members who are at increased risk for suicide but not currently in behavioral health treatment for the purpose of determining if a brief intervention improves the initiation of treatment. Participants assigned to the treatment condition will be presented an individualized CB intervention. The CB intervention takes 45-60 minutes, is delivered by phone, and has been shown to promote treatment-seeking including in a preliminary study of OEFOIF Veterans with elevated posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD symptoms. Participants will be assessed at baseline and at 1-month, 3-month, and 6-month follow-up. Analyses are based on logistic and mixed effect models.
