Book Description

In the last decade, suicidal behavior in the military and veteran populations has been a consistent feature in the media and in the news. Suicide rates among active-duty American military personnel have reached their highest level in approximately three decades, making this the first time in about three decades that they have reached this level. The Handbook of Military and Veteran Suicide (PDF) investigates what is likely the most advanced scientific understanding of the phenomenon of active duty and veteran suicide while also providing valuable; practically applicable scientific information for those who engage with this population.

This comprehensive Handbook covers all relevant topics and the most recent research in the field of suicide in the military and veteran populations. Some of the topics covered in this Handbook include: the links between post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and suicide; the stigma of receiving mental health treatment in the military; inspecting for firearms access in military and veteran populations; “subintentioned” suicide (for example, irresponsible driving and other such “accidental” deaths); working with families; and women in combat. The evaluation of the risk of suicide, evidence-based treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury, moral issues in treating suicidal patients, and managing the risk of suicide in elder veterans are all covered in separate chapters. Important issues that will come up in assessing and treating military and veteran populations that are at risk for suicide are introduced and discussed with evidence-based and practical ideas. These issues will arise during the course of the book. Researchers, clinicians, and policymakers who work with populations of active-duty service members and veterans will find this Handbook to be beneficial.
