Suicide & Traumatic Brain Injury

Suicide accounts for 20 veteran deaths each day. One service member takes his or her life daily. Though not tracked, it is estimated that one military family member takes his of her life daily. Sources include the Veterans’ Administration and Department of Defense.

One of the signature conditions from overseas deployments is TBI or Traumatic Brain Injury. TBI is also strongly associated with military suicide.

Traumatic Brain Injury: Intentional self-harm (including suicide) associated with TBI-related deaths have increased during the period between 2007 and 2013. (Morbidity and Mortality Report, March 2017)

In 2013, suicide was the second leading cause of TBI-related deaths at 33%. (Centers for Disease Control)
