Presentation Title: Suicide Risk Within Military Personnel

Abstract: Dr. James will begin the symposium with the current literature pertaining to suicide risk within military personnel; rates from OEF/OIF will be explored, in addition to the unique effects of PTSD on suicidality. This will highlight the imperative nature of suicide risk assessment in prevention. Data suggests that there are not clear and concise standards regarding suicide assessment within the military. Efforts to standardize suicide risk assessment across military branches, as well establishing a few measures that are quick and easy to use, will be examined.
