UK studying how military suicides affect families

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The University of Kentucky is conducting a study to find out how military suicides affect families and friends.

Researcher Julie Cerel told the Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/POarnb) that the Suicide Bereavement in Military and Their Families study will last two years and is funded with a $677,000 grant.

Cerel said the effort could be 1 of the first times that a census has been taken of individuals affected by military or veteran suicide. She said researchers will do random phone interviews with veterans and non-veterans. In addition, she says they will interview more than 100 Kentucky families who have had a veteran or active-duty military member commit suicide in the past five years.
