Abstract:

This annual report of the Department of Defense DoD Suicide Event Report DoDSER program summarizes calendar year CY 2010 fatal and non-fatal suicide events reported and submitted by 1 April 2011. This report presents aggregated DoDSER data for the overall DoD and individually for the Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine Corps. Personally identifiable information has been redacted from this report. The DoDSER program is one of the primary methods used in the DoD to help characterize suicide behaviors that occur among military personnel. The DoDSER thoroughly assesses several areas of interest to suicide prevention efforts physical and behavioral health histories, military history, circumstances at the time of the event e.g., stressors and significant life events, and demographic data. This report was developed to support a wide range of possible needs with the ultimate goal of preventing suicides among active duty service members. This annual report represents the combined efforts of the National Center for Telehealth Technology T2, all the Services suicide prevention programs, and the DoDs Suicide Prevention and Risk Reduction Committee SPARRC.
