Phase 2 of the Caring Contacts study is now underway, and all sites are actively enrolling participants. In Phase 2, we have applied the cultural adaptation feedback gathered in Phase 1 and are conducting a randomized, controlled clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy of the culturally tailored Caring Contacts intervention. With the cultural adaptation of the study intervention, one of our aims is to increase social connectedness with study participants, with the goal of decreasing suicidal ideation and attempts.
