Sailor Assistance and Intercept for Life (SAIL)

SAIL logo

Sailor Assistance and Intercept for Life (SAIL) is a program available to active duty Sailors who experienced a suicide ideation or attempt (Suicide-Related Behavior). SAIL is an evidence-based intervention that provides rapid assistance, ongoing risk assessment, care coordination, and reintegration assistance. Risk is assessed at key intervals using the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale and managed using the Veterans Affairs Safety Plan through a series of contacts over 90 days following Suicide-Related Behavior.

SAIL does not replace needed mental health services and is not a form of treatment. SAIL case managers are Fleet and Family Support Center counselors who maintain contact with Sailors, healthcare providers and command leadership, assisting with care coordination and engaging additional resources as needed.

Sailors are automatically referred to SAIL by their command, however, a referral can also be made by contacting the Fleet and Family Support Center. Participation in this program is voluntary.
