Preventing Suicide

According to the Veterans Administration, more than 6,000 Veterans lost their lives to suicide in 2017, and that number continues to rise.

The NYARNG Safety Office has assembled tips to help identify the warning signs of suicide and suggested actions one can take to help anyone suffering from mental health crises.
