Active Military Duty
 

The links below will connect you to the Department of Defense Military Health System and specifically to links regarding suicide prevention and access to mental health services for active duty personnel and their families. The introduction to the website reads:

“Military life can be stressful for service members and their families. Everyone reacts to stress and traumatic experiences differently, and some may feel angry or isolated. These reactions can be common responses to life events, but, for some, these feelings may be signs of more serious conditions, including depression, traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress disorder. People coping with these concerns may feel like there is no escape from their symptoms, leading them to have thoughts of suicide. Deaths as a result of suicide are a preventable public health concern and a top priority for the Department of Defense (DoD).”

Veterans
 

If you are a veteran, veteran family member, member of a veterans service organization, or member of another group interested in VA mental health care, you can use the link below to learn what mental health services your local or regional VA health care facility has pledged to provide to veterans. There is a wealth of information, not only about suicide prevention, but also relating to a multitude of mental health services and many other resources available to military personnel and their families.
