Stand Up to Suicide: LGBTQ+ Veterans Have an Increased Risk of Suicide

According to a 2020 report, LGBTQ+ Veterans are at greater risk of suicide than the general population. In fact, suicide accounted for 3.8% of deaths among LGBTQ+ Veterans in 2017 and was ranked fifth in the top causes of death among LGBTQ+ Veterans also in 2017.

If you or a fellow Veteran find yourself in crisis and need someone to talk to, the Veterans Crisis Line is available 24/7. You can call (1-800-273-8255, press 1), text (838255), or chat (www.veteranscrisisline.net).

You are not alone, there is help.
