Suicide Prevention Month

Suicide Prevention Month

The Department of Defense (DoD) and the Military Health System (MHS) observe Suicide Prevention Month 2019 to increase awareness about behavioral health care services and promote and enhance suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention for service members and their families. Our goal is to reduce stigma and increase awareness in order to facilitate help-seeking behaviors. MHS will highlight that strength and resilience are possible through support networks and the use of DoD and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) resources. Additionally, Suicide Prevention Month 2019 allows the DoD and VA partnership to show how individuals, organizations, and communities can work together to support service members and veterans in times of crisis and provide protective factors for those at risk of suicide.
