Advanced Postdoctoral Fellowship
VA Rocky Mountain MIRECC for Suicide Prevention
The Denver Rocky Mountain Mental Illness Research, Education and Clinical Center for Suicide Prevention is currently accepting applications for the APA-accredited Advanced Fellowship Program in Mental Illness Research and Treatment in Suicide Prevention. Faculty currently accepting Fellows are Dr. Sean Barnes, Ph.D., Dr. Bryann DeBeer, Ph.D., and Dr. Lindsey Monteith, Ph.D. Dr. Barnes’ research is focused on the use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and contextual behavioral science to prevent suicide and foster reasons for living. Dr. DeBeer is currently developing and testing: 1) a lethal means safety intervention that involves a concerned significant other; 2) an intervention that provides brief therapy to Veterans who are at risk for suicide, yet ineligible for VA care; 3) an intervention that follows Veterans who are “dual-users” (e.g., receive both VA and community care). Dr. Monteith currently leads a number of initiatives focused on understanding and preventing suicide among understudied and underserved populations, including: women Veterans; survivors of interpersonal violence (such as military sexual trauma); Veterans not using VA services; and Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Island Veterans. She is further interested in determining how findings can be translated into evidence-based practices such as safety planning, firearm lethal means safety, and use of the Veterans crisis line. General inquiries regarding the fellowship and application materials for the Fellowship position(s) may be e-mailed to Dr. Ryan Holliday at Ryan.Holliday@va.gov.
