Post-9/11 veterans saw suicide rates soar in the years before pandemic, study finds
A silent epidemic of suicides stalked the nation's military veterans community, even before the global shutdown brought on by the COVID-19 shutdown. A new government-funded study released Monday found that suicide rates among veterans who served in the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks soared more than tenfold during the decade and a half before the pandemic hit.
Trends in suicide rates among post-9/11 veterans with and without traumatic brain injury
About The Study: In a large cohort of U.S. military veterans serving after 9/11, suicide rates increased more than 10-fold from 2006-2020, a significantly greater rate of change than in the U.S. adult population. Over the 15-year period, veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI) had suicide rates 56% higher than veterans without TBI and three times higher than the U.S. adult population.
