Mental Health

The goal of the Army Suicide Prevention Program (ASSP)External Link is to prevent suicides and lower the chances that a person may harm themselves. As a key piece of the Army's Ready and Resilient Campaign, the ASPP has shared responsibilities between leaders, Soldiers, Family members, and Army Civilians. Although many have the resilience to work through their issues, some may need assistance.

Although suicide is a serious public health concern, it is preventable. You can help by keeping an eye out for warriors who may be struggling. Speak up if you are concerned about the psychological wellbeing of a service member or veteran in your life.

You've been trained to identify sources of physical danger for yourself and your fellow warriors. You can also learn to identify psychological health concerns that may be affecting service members in your unit or community.
