Suicide Prevention Getting More Proactive
The Army and Navy are witnessing the highest numbers of suicides since 2001 – and the Marine Corps and Air Force seeing large numbers as well.
What to do?
Get active as in proactive.
Defense officials are planning just that in the coming months, according to the Military Times.
Outreach and identification instead of de-stigmatizing mental health care is increasingly the order of the day for the military.
Programs emphasizing one-on-one help with veterans serving as counselors have worked.
Expect more of that coming soon to a base near you.
