Suicide Prevention-Eliminating Stigmas

Via Army Live

Suicide Prevention is an issue that the U.S. Army has been focused on for years. The mission of the Suicide Prevention Program is to improve readiness through the development and enhancement of the Army Suicide Prevention Program policies designed to minimize suicide behavior; thereby preserving mission effectiveness through individual readiness for Soldiers, their Families, and Department of the Army civilians.

Now more than ever, Army Senior Leaders have been focusing on eliminating the stigmas behind Soldiers seeking and receiving help. In a five part video series, Brig. General Colleen McGuire, Suicide Prevention Task Force, discusses these stigmas and how the program is working towards eliminating each.
