Army STARRS: Vol 1, Iss 13 (UPDATED DEC 6, 2016)

This document is an ongoing continuous summary of Army STARRS and STARRS-LS publications. Army STARRS (2009-2015) was the largest and most comprehensive research project of mental health among U.S. Army Soldiers ever conducted. The project was designed to examine a broad range of risk and resilience (protective) factors across a complex set of outcomes including suicidal behaviors and associated mental health issues. Army STARRS scientists created a series of large and extensive databases with the potential to achieve groundbreaking results. These databases allow scientists to investigate a diverse combination of factors from demographic, psychological, biological, neurological, behavioral, and social domains with the goal of generating actionable findings for the Army. The project was designed using an adaptive approach which means it evolved as new information became available over the course of the project. The research team shared preliminary findings, as they became available, with senior Army leadership so the Army could apply them to its ongoing health promotion, risk reduction, and suicide prevention efforts. The work is continuing under the STARRS Longitudinal Study (STARRS-LS) which runs from 2015 to 2020.

Artiss Symposium 2016

The Center is a sponsoring partner for the annual Artiss Symposium. Kenneth L. Artiss, MD (1913–2001), the namesake of the symposium, was an Army officer, a research psychiatrist and instructor at the former Walter Reed Army Medical Center who inspired generations of military psychiatry residents to conduct high quality research. This year's symposium, titled "Understanding the Patients' Experience: Beyond the Diagnosis" will be held on June 1, 2016, from 0800-1600 at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence which is adjacent to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. On site registration is free and Continuing Education credits will be offered.
