Designed for mental health professionals and researchers, this online fact sheet provides information about trauma, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and suicide. It presents suicide statistics, identifies types of trauma associated with increased risk of suicide (e.g., military sexual trauma), explores research on whether PTSD increases suicide risk, and highlights types of treatment for PTSD that may also lower risk for suicide.
