Unprecedented Army Suicide Rate

November 18, 2009

The Washington Post reports that the 2009 Army suicide rate is expected top last year's record high.

As of Nov. 16, 140 soldiers on active duty and 71 soldiers not on active duty were thought to have died by suicide. The monthly suicide rate has generally declined since March, which may be in part the result of a campaign to engage more Army leaders in suicide prevention efforts.
