Five page paper in APA format with extract (150 words) and three sources cited from other papers. The paper

experiences and secondary problems that can be caused by the military life style. I have provided a bibliography

Veteran Suicide: An Annotated Bibliography
Beck, C, S. (2016, July 7). What’s Being Done to Prevent Veteran Suicide Christian Science Monitor. p. N.PAG.
Christina Beck explains the problem of veteran suicide that has developed and quotes several people in her work including the Secretary of Health for the VA. She provides a sufficient amount of statistical data. She brings to light that the veterans who are receiving VA health care have a much lower suicide rate compared to veterans who are not receiving health care. Since 2001, the rate at which veterans receiving VA care committed suicide was 8.8 percent, while veterans not receiving care committed suicide at a rate of 38.6 percent over that period. This piece of work is a good resource for the overall statistics regarding veteran suicide and what is currently in the works to solve the issue.
Bower, B (2016). Over the EDGE. Science News, 189(1), 22-26.
In Over the EDGE, Bowers dives into the psychological side of suicide and how psychiatrists treat
patients with depression and suicidal thoughts. He mentions how they began to look at an act of suicide and a suicidal thought as two different problems. He also argues that, evidence increasingly suggests that the way current and former soldiers judge themselves and their wartime actions helps to explain why some burdened by some symptoms of depression and post-traumatic stress try to kill themselves. Which brings a key point in my paper about coping with experiences and trying to view them in a way that will bring less negative emotions.

This was a research project done by mental health doctors who assessed thirty four veterans which all participated in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. They conducted interviews with these individuals who volunteered to help identify common connections and individual differences among their suicidal thoughts. Their results revealed key points that all were included in their stories which included military culture, difficult deployment experiences, and post deployment adjustment. Their work provides a very in depth analysis of the problems these servicemen and woman were subject to.
Gregg,Z. (2014). @greggzoroya, & USA, T. (n.d). The Tragic Tide of Suicide: 4 an hour. USA Today.
There’s a suicide in the USA every 13 minutes. Zoroya is a journalist who writes this article as a concerned citizen who wants to help these people. Describing a few personal experiences. One from Justin Fitch, an army captain, which at one point was holding his rifle aimed at himself with the muzzle in his mouth. Justin later sought help and was coping with his depression when he then was diagnosed with terminal colon cancer. Zoroya’s article provides emotional stories that have more complex meaning behind them.
Dokoupil, T. (2013). The Suicide Epidemic. Newsweek Global, 161(19), 1.
Dokoupil begins his article with the story of Thomas Joiner Sr. He was a former marine and successful businessman, who at the age of 56, took his own life. His son Thomas Joiner Jr. is now dedicating his career to help people with depression and has committed to interrogating suicide as hard as anyone ever has. Dokoipil intensifies the epidemic that suicide has become. He explains Joiners findings with suicide relates to people not belonging and feeling like a burden on family members, which explains why suicides rise with unemployment. He mentions Joiner’s final explanation for why people die by suicide. People will die by suicide when they have both the desire to die and the ability to die.
McCarthy, J. F., Blow, F. C., Ignacio, R. V., Ilgen, M. A., Austin, K. L., & Valenstein, M. (2012). Suicide Among Patients in the Veterans Affairs Health System: Rural-Urban Differences in Rates, Risks, and Methods. American Journal Of Public Health, 102(S1), S111-S117. doi:10.2105/AJPH.2011.300463
This work describes the differences between rural versus urban environments and how they affect the veterans living in different areas. They examine the heightened risk that comes with veterans located in a rural environment. They found that rural residents had an increased risk for falling victim to suicide. Reasons for this connect back to another articles idea that feeling less belonging to a community increases the rate of suicide. This is a factor that I had not considered until I came across this article.
