Veteran Suicide: The Impact of Gender and VHA Service Use


by Claire Hoffmire, Ph.D.
Seminar date: 2/8/2016

Description: Dr. Hoffmire will present findings from her recent publication, ‘Changes in Suicide Mortality for Veterans and Nonveterans by Gender and History of VHA Service Use, 2000–2010’ which reported suicide rates for Veterans across 23 states from 2000-2010 as compared to suicide rates observed for their non-Veteran peers. Study findings will be discussed in the context of additional, related research on Veteran suicide methods and timing of suicide as it relates to separation from military service. Intended audiences for this presentation include both researchers & clinicians with an interest in veteran suicide prevention.
