VA PTSD SUICIDE STATISTICS FOR 2012


file me

Hot off the press. Find out who, where and when. The why is pretty much a foregone conclusion.  A big thank you to Bob for this one. Perhaps this will also help in spotting trends that develop geographically or by age group. Or maybe it’s merely the Book of the Dead. One thing is a given. If the VA is the author, it’s going to read like Grimm’s Faery Tales or have some colorful pigs in the story.

Mr. Brock's claim

And they all lived happily ever after.

    Nice job Alex, the gun control wipes me out. You are doing great work, keep it up. You are the only voice for Veterans today, Thank You!

    This expensive report includes data from 21 states and doesn’t include Texas and California; I’m guessing the suicide numbers are even worse. Older veterans (Vietnam-era and up) are more likely to be suicidal or commit suicide, than non-veterans. No surprise there. This study is tightly focused on suicide numbers alone; It doesn’t tell us about the unmet needs of veterans who call the VA crisis line.
    Rather than spending millions of dollars to see how many veterans actually kill themselves, can’t we use that money to shelter, nurse, and feed veterans instead?
