Preventing Military Suicides

Just last year, our country lost 295 active duty service members to suicide.

With military services counting and examining them, we have the information on who died during or after deployment. And we also know the means as to how the service members took their own lives and if they were experiencing a crisis in their life.

So, how can we prevent them?

On The New York Times website, debates are posted regarding different areas that affect service members. These include:

What We Know, and Don't
The Best Medicine Just Might Be a Job
Challenges for Service Women
Mounting Tolls of a 10-Year War
The Importances of Military Families

And if you are in crisis, please call 1-800-273-TALK
