The Army’s suicide prevention program’s (ASPP) goal is to minimize suicidal behavior by reducing the risk of suicide for Soldiers, Army Civilians, and Family members. Suicide prevention programs implement control measures to address and minimize risk factors for suicide while strengthening the factors that mitigate those risks.  ASPP is commitment to provide resources for suicide-intervention skills, prevention, and follow-up in an effort to reduce the occurrence of suicidal behavior across the Army. The ASPP develops initiatives to tailor and target policies, programs, and training in order to mitigate risk and behavior associated with suicide.

Suicide prevention is a continuum of awareness, intervention, and postvention to help save lives. Prevention refers to all efforts that build resilience, reduce stigma, and build awareness of suicide and related behaviors. Ultimately, the goal of prevention is to develop healthy, resilient Soldiers to the state that suicide is not an option. Prevention focuses on reducing life stressors and intervening when life crises become so overwhelming that suicide becomes a serious consideration. It is important to establish a culture that reinforces and normalizes help-seeking behavior as an appropriate and generally accepted part of being responsible. Training can be provided to improve intervention skills, increase knowledge, and build confidence in Soldiers to respond appropriately to a suicidal threat.
