National Suicide Prevention & Awareness Month

Important Information to Pass on to Military Families
National Suicide Prevention & Awareness Month
Posted on 9/8/2000

The Watson Institute 2021 study of suicide among military finds that at least four times as many active duty personnel and war veterans of post-9/11 conflicts have died of suicide than in combat. An estimated 30,177 have died by suicide as compared with the 7,057 killed in war operations after 9/11. (See the reference and link below.)

It's critical that family members of our military personnel understand more about suicide and share an awareness of suicide prevention. September is National Suicide Prevention & Awareness Month. Suicidology is the scientific study of suicidal behavior, the causes of suicidalness, and suicide prevention. AAS, the American Association of Suicidology, has a vast list of resources for sharing among family members.

What can YOU do? Spread the word. Share this announcement and list of resources with your military family and friends. Let's make September 2022 the year that Suicide Prevention Awareness reaches more military families than ever before!
