In support of Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, Aptive is shining a light on its work with the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act (Clay Hunt Act).
Aptive has extensive experience with evaluation methodology, data analysis and project management. Under the Clay Hunt Act contract, Aptive conducts the nation’s largest suicide prevention and mental health program evaluation for the country’s largest integrated health care system—the Veterans Health Administration (VHA).
The Aptive Team supports VHA’s Office of Mental Health and Suicide Prevention to evaluate the mental health and suicide prevention programs at VA medical centers and clinics. Each program’s specific measures and effectiveness are assessed and defined as needed, with subsequent analyses built on prior year evaluations.
Upon evaluation, Aptive consulted more than two dozen mental health experts within and outside VA. Learn how the evaluations led to best practice recommendations included in a report for Congress.
