Suicide in the ex-service community

Professor David Dunt undertook a study to investigate the prevalence of suicide within the ex-service community. His study recommended the conduct of the 2010 ADF Mental Health Prevalence and Wellbeing Study.

Professor Dunt’s study was inconclusive on whether suicide was more prevalent in the ex-service community than the general population.
