Suicide Prevention

You are not alone.

For family members and friends
Supporting a loved one through a crisis can feel overwhelming, but there are people who can help. If the Soldier in your life is showing signs of crisis - such as talking about feeling hopeless; experiencing sleeplessness, anxiety, or agitation; or increasing risky behaviors or substance use, contact the Fort Bliss MP Desk: 915-744-1237/9128 , Dispatch (Police/Fire): 915-744-2115 or unit staff duty.

For Soldiers
If you’re thinking of hurting yourself, looking for ways to kill yourself, or becoming self-destructive, don’t walk alone. Contact 911, the El Paso Crisis Line or the Chaplain Line for assistance.
