‚ÄčU.S. Army Reserve Component (RC) - The Surveillance of Suicidal Behavior Publication (SSBP) among RC (including National Guard and Reserve) Soldiers reports on the frequency and characteristics of suicidal behavior during calendar year 2017 using multiple data sources stored in the Army Behavioral Health Integrated Data Environment (ABHIDE). Suicides were obtained among activated and non-activated RC Soldiers, and suicide attempts and suicidal ideations were ascertained among activated RC Soldiers.
During 2017, 354 U.S. Army National Guard Soldiers engaged in suicidal behavior: 122 died by suicide, 22 had documented suicide attempts, and 210 had a reported suicidal ideation. In the U.S. Army Reserve, 213 Soldiers had a documented suicidal behavior: 62 died by suicide, 17 had a documented suicide attempt, and 133 had a reported suicidal ideation.

In addition to providing annual surveillance of suicidal behavior publications, the Behavioral Health Monitoring branch also produces ad-hoc and routine requests for information (RFIs) for Army leaders.
