The Army theme for 2013 is “Shoulder to Shoulder: Standing Ready and Resilient.”
The Army Suicide Prevention Program is an effort under the Ready and Resilient Campaign to sustain an environment that enhances the resiliency of Soldiers, Army civilians, and family members.
Any loss suffered within the Army family is tragic and affects readiness. Each member of the Army community has a role in creating a climate of trust and respect in which every person is able to thrive and achieve their full potential. Knowing and recognizing the risk-factors/warning signs for potential suicidal or risky behaviors and the resources available to them in crisis is key.
