At a time when UK veteran suicides continue at an alarming rate we still have no lawful obligation placed upon coroners to statistically record veteran suicides, unlike countries such as the US, Canada and Australia.
Daily Rank: #780 • Weekly Rank: #589 • Total Rank: #171
Government must make the statistical recording of veteran suicide a legal obligation to all coroners, in doing so finally honouring its part in the Armed Forces Covenant.
These brave men and women have paid the highest physical and psychological costs for serving Queen and Country, and UK government must repay this by efficaciously monitoring their mental health: of which veteran suicide is the most pressing issue of all.
Coroners must routinely statistically record all veteran suicides.
