Individuals with posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD have higher rates of morbidity and mortality as well as an increased risk for death by suicide. Moreover, research has shown that individuals who are diagnosed with (PTSD) are at an increased risk for both suicide ideation and attempts. Among veterans, suicide is far too common and the risk continues to be high for many years following discharge from service. The PTSD-suicidal behavior link has been substantiated by the presence of common risk factors and high rates of comorbidity. War veterans should be adequately assessed for current suicidal behavior on a routine basis.
