Update from the UGA Student Veterans Association (SVA): 

The UGA Chapter of the Student Veterans of America is supporting research by Cody Ellis, a fellow student veteran at UGA, tied to an important topic dealing with the determinants of veteran suicide.

His survey focuses on the numerous transitional issues veterans encounter when separating from the military. Please click here to begin your survey – it will only take 3 – 5 minutes of your time and will be greatly appreciated.
