Continue To Combat Suicide Among Troops and Veterans

“40% of IAVA members know an Iraq or Afghanistan veteran who has died by suicide. ”

—2014 IAVA Member Survey

When it comes to veteran and troop suicide there can be no misses—the stakes are too high and our national responsibility is too great. That anyone who has worn our uniform concludes that they have no support and no alternative but suicide is a national crisis and disgrace. For nearly a decade, IAVA and the veterans’ community have called for immediate action by our nation’s leaders to end this crisis. In that time we have lost too many friends, but there has been some progress—most notably the passage of the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans (SAV) Act of 2015. But there is still much work to be done. Working with community groups, Congress and the Obama Administration must bring the full force of the government to better identify and support those in crisis and dramatically improve access to and the quality of mental health care.
