Returning soldiers have a high rate of suicide-- sometimes due to the amount of deployments they experience or traumatic stress disorder or depression that challenges one's mental health. What can be done to help this situation?

P.S. And if the soldier has PTSD, make every attempt to pair that soldier with a service dog as soon as possible. A service dog is a constant companion and fan of its person, it keeps secrets forever, and its coat soaks up tears better than tissues.

Your comments do not reflect current medical science and practice, though I am glad you found a solution for yourself. Real mental illnesses can be seen/measured by brain scans (EEG, MRI) and some by blood test. Details at: http://www.nimh.nih.gov
The question was, "Returning soldiers have a high rate of suicide..." Ending war won't help those returning from it with mental illness, but it will prevent it from happening to more people (assuming the illness was caused directly by the war).
