This report was prepared for the interim National Commissioner for Defence and Veteran Suicide Prevention and is being published as an accompaniment to the interim National Commissioner’s report tabled in Parliament and publicly released on 29 September 2021.

This report investigates trends, and potential risk and protective factors for ADF members who died by suicide, including military service and post-service experience. The analysis focusses on ADF members who died by suicide and who had at least one day of service between 2001 and 2018, and makes comparisons with the ADF population and Australians who died by suicide.
