LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The U.S. military turns to Texas Tech for help with the issue of soldiers committing suicide. University of Texas, the University of Pennsylvania, and Brook Army Medical Center will also be helping.
Texas Tech's Psychology Department chair, David Rudd, will lead the two million dollar study. Rudd says in January more soldiers died from suicide than from combat. He also says that's a first in U.S. history. One of the goals is to see if a three month treatment program can reduce suicide rates among "at risk" soldiers.
