Suicide Prevention: What can I do today?

We have lost 11 Airmen over the last 4 weeks and more than 100 Total Force Airmen in 2018. Despite our collective efforts and responsibility for their well-being, suicide remains the leading cause of death for Airmen. These losses know neither grade, AFSC, status nor unit boundaries. They represent all of us. Please read the attached “What I Can Do Today” to learn how else you can arm yourselves in the pursuit of ZERO suicides and visit for more prevention tools. Additionally, we have several innovative programs at a number of installations (Task Force True North, Zero Suicide Systems Approach, Wingman Connect/Sources of Strength) aimed at increasing resilience and the understanding that seeking help is considered a strength. We encourage you to open up and share your own stories of struggle and triumph; use this experience to help others. If you want more information about these initiatives, contact your installation Community Support Coordinator.
