Suicide Prevention Efforts of the Veterans Health Administration (VHA)
Erin Bagalman (au)
Responsibility for prevention of veteran suicide lies primarily with the VHA. The VHA Strategic Plan for Suicide Prevention is based on a public health framework, which has 3 major components: (1) surveillance, (2) risk and protective factors, and (3) prevention interventions. No nationwide surveillance system exists for suicide among all vets; therefore, the actual incidence of suicide among vets is not known. Systematic collection of data on fatal suicides is essential to define the scope of the problem, identify characteristics assoc. with higher or lower risk of suicide, and track changes in the suicide rate. This report identifies challenges the VHA faces in each component of suicide prevention and discusses issues for Congress. Illus. A print on demand report.
