Brief Cognitive Behavioral Therapy BCBT has been indicated as an efficacious treatment to decrease suicide risk in military personnel but has yet to be empirically examined as a treatment to reduce suicide attempts in Active Duty US Marines. In the current study, 210 Active Duty Marines with past-month suicide ideation andor attempts will be enrolled in BCBT or Present Centered Therapy PCT an active control condition, and assessed every 3 months for 2 years following treatment completion. Main outcomes examined in the study include suicide attempts and suicide ideation. All IRB and HRPO approvals have been obtained for the original protocol. Enrollment in the study is anticipated to begin in September 2019. Supplementary funding for the project has been awarded to examine the temporal dynamics between sleep disorders and suicidal behavior in a subset of Active Duty Marines enrolled in the original protocol. This addition to the original study is currently under IRB review at Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune.
