The Project: Australia's Scourge of Veteran Suicide // MULTIMEDIA

This story was produced for Network Ten's 'The Project' in August 2016, after a series of releases of information from the Department of Veterans Affairs revealed a spike in the number of Australian veterans of conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan committing suicide. This story preceded a live interview on the program with then- Minister for Veterans Affairs, Dan Tehan with host of The Project, Waleed Aly.

"ItÕs been revealed that more Aussie soldiers have died from suicide this year than were killed in action in thirteen years in Afghanistan Š now veterans and their families are demanding action."
