The Department of Defense’s 2018 Annual Suicide Report released Thursday indicates the National Guard has the highest suicide rate of all military components, underscoring the significant challenges it faces preventing Soldiers and Airmen from taking their own lives.
The National Guard’s suicide rate has climbed higher than the active duty and Reserve’s, according to an annual Pentagon study released Thursday. In response, officials are looking for new ways to help troops feel comfortable coming forward about their issues and getting help they need.
