Expert: Redeployment sparks many suicides
April 20, 2009
David Rudd, Texas Tech University professor and author 'Interpersonal Theory of Suicide,'
said the more a person is exposed to violence or death, the more that person loses
anxiety about death. This specifically applies to soldiers living in a war zone because
the interaction with death makes it more probable that these people will kill themselves
when they get depressed or anxious.
