Nov 24, 2020

The relationship between PTSD and suicide is important to understand if we want to prevent suicide among veterans and military service members. So what is the relationship between PTSD and suicide? Well, according to suicide and PTSD researcher Dr. Ryan Holliday…. It’s complicated!

In this conversation, Dr. Holliday talks to fellow MIRECC Psychologist, Dr. Nazanin Bahraini, about his review of the recent research on suicide risk and PTSD. They discuss who is most vulnerable for suicide, and what drives suicide risk. Dr. Holliday talks about how clinicians can navigate these complex factors to help their clients in therapy, and offers some words of wisdom and support for veterans and service members who are struggling.
