Operation Deep Dive

Upstate Warrior Solution is a proud participant in Operation Deep Dive.

Operation Deep Dive is a first of its kind community-based veteran suicide prevention study taking place in 14 communities across the country. This four-year study is a partnership between America’s Warrior Partnership and researchers from the University of Alabama.

The goal of Operation Deep Dive is to identify the risk factors that lead to suicide and deaths from self-harm in veteran communities. This will help guide the development of programs that will improve the quality of life and reduce self-harm and suicide among veterans.

Operation Deep Dive is the first research study of its kind to look at:

  • The impact of community environments on veterans.
  • The impact of less-than-honorable discharges on veteran suicides.
  • The differences in suicide rates between those who did and did not receive support services from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Have you lost a veteran to suicide or self-harm?

Operation Deep Dive is seeking interview participants. The goal of these interviews is to investigate the lives of the veteran lost to suicide or death from self-harm for the last six months to a year before their death. The goal is to look at how the community supported or challenged the veteran and where we can do better to support those who have served within our community.
