Suicide Prevention

Fleet and Family Support Center staff members provide suicide briefs throughout the year, particularly during the months of September-February, and briefs specifically requested by commands.

Suicide prevention is an all hands effort; the third leading cause of death in the Navy. Using all of our resources helps to build resilience in our Sailors and our military community

Reach out and lend a hand. ACT (Ask, Care, Treat).

ASK what's bothering the person. Help them to overcome the reluctance to talk. Don't judge.

CARE by listening and offer hope. Suicidal feelings are temporary and depression can be treated.

TREAT by taking action to get assistance and follow-up. Don't leave them alone.
