Study Examines Suicide Rate In Transgender Military Veterans

The Daily Caller (12/30, Bennett) reports that a study published Dec. 11 in the journal LGBT Health suggests that the suicide rate among transgender military veterans “is very similar to the rate for veterans suffering from schizophrenia or serious depression.” After examining “a sample of 3,327 transgendered veterans over a period of 10 years, from 2000 to 2009,” researchers also found that transgender “suicides occurred at an even younger age than (in) veterans who committed suicide as a result of suffering from schizophrenia.”
