Suicide risk among women veterans in distress: perspectives of responders on the veterans crisis line.
The researchers used a qualitative approach to gain insight about the concerns and nature of comments regarding suicidal ideation and intent among women veterans calling the Veterans Crisis Line (VCL). Interviewing 54 VCL call responders, the authors concluded that efforts to prevent and treat the consequences of military sexual trauma; to recognize, prevent, and treat non-suicidal self-harm; and to restrict access to lethal means most commonly reported among women veteran callers may be helpful to mitigate suicide risk in this vulnerable group of veterans.
