About The Study: In a large cohort of U.S. military veterans serving after 9/11, suicide rates increased more than 10-fold from 2006-2020, a significantly greater rate of change than in the U.S. adult population. Over the 15-year period, veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI) had suicide rates 56% higher than veterans without TBI and three times higher than the U.S. adult population.
