CY 2008 national suicide rate adjusted for MC demographics

The 2008 national suicide rate adjusted for Marine Corps demographics is 20.7 per 100,000.

Calculating an adjusted national rate is important to accurately compare Marine Corps and national suicide rates, as in Figure 1.

The national adjusted suicide rate is calculated by taking Centers for Disease Control data, and changing the data to look more like the Marine Corps (mostly young and male). Adjusted civilian rates for CYs ’09 and ’10 will be calculated when the data is available.

Suicide Prevention Media Guidelines:

The Suicide Prevention Resource Center offers the following guidelines when using media to prevent suicide:

- Themes should be positive (e.g., “Life is worth living”) versus negative (e.g., “Don‟t kill yourself”).
- Depictions should not contain graphics or descriptions of methods of suicide (e.g., guns, pills, etc.) because that has been shown to lead to copycat suicides.
- The word „suicide‟ should not appear in titles or headlines.
- Scenes should depict desired behavior (e.g., Marines talking to other Marines), not undesired behavior (e.g., sitting isolated in a corner).
- Actors or models should not appear disheveled, depressed, or in obvious distress. They should appear normal, because there are often no obvious warning signs of distress, and close engagement is required to tell if someone may be at risk.

    Tl; dr: Make mountain from molehill

    In the paper: Government trying to create military-industrial complex jobs by manufacturing an issue: soldier suicides

    Soldiers commit suicide routinely, and have ever since the first soldier existed. It happens due to the fact that soldiering is the most stressful job on the entire planet. Known remedies for this problem exist such as ecstacy (the street drug): it has been tried succesfully in the treatment of PTSD. Government does not like ecstacy as a solution, and so pretends that it isnt one and makes this paper to excuse wasting more money trying to find something else, most likely less effective.
