Married veterans more at risk of suicide than single soldiers

Married Veterans More at Risk of Suicide than Single Soldiers

Among recently returned veterans, a new study says those who are married or living with a partner are at higher suicide risk than soldiers who are single, and older married female veterans are at the greatest risk.
While one might assume soldiers returning from deployment would find comfort and support reuniting with a spouse or loved one, the transition to the domestic environment can cause stress, according to the analysis by researchers at the University of Connecticut and U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.
