Suicides have rapidly risen among military personnel and veterans; it is currently the second-leading cause of death among military personnel. In response to these trends, a brief cognitive–behavioral therapy (BCBT) to prevent suicide attempts was developed and tested in a sample of active duty military personnel. BCBT teaches military personnel and veterans skills directly related to the prevention of suicide attempts: problem-solving, emotion regulation, and cognitive reappraisal. BCBT has been shown to reduce suicide attempts by 60% among military personnel. This chapter provides an overview of suicide among military personnel and veterans, along with a brief description of the BCBT protocol.
