Abstract
In the context of the Canadian mission in Afghanistan, there has been significant media attention on mental health problems and lack of access to mental health services among Canadian military personnel. It remains unknown whether the prevalence of suicidal ideation, plans, and attempts and their treatment are changing over time or differ between Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and Canadian General Population (CGP). Herein, we compare prevalence of suicidal behaviours and help seeking between the CGP and the CAF, and examine trends over a ten-year period.
