Suicides: royal commission will take too long


A royal commission takes on average three years to complete, and though it might outline a range of recommendations, most social reforms take five years or more to start showing a measurable change based on data and research.

With one veteran on average dying by suicide every two weeks, we need more funding directed to prevention programs right now.

The rationale for undertaking a royal commission is to get to the bottom of an issue. But the issues that relate to veterans’ suicides and ideation are well known to the psychological community.
