- Army Suicide Prevention Program
- Veterans Health Administration Suicide Prevention Program
- TRICARE – Suicide Prevention Portal
- Real Warriors Campaign

These are just some of the great resources that MHS has listed on their Web site, so be sure to visit their “Speak Up, Reach Out” suicide prevention page and help them promote it by placing the above image on your Web site using the code provided.
In addition to the resources listed on the page, MHS also released a new MHS Dot Mil Docs podcast this week featuring Walt Morales, who is the program manager for the Army Suicide Prevention Program. During the podcast, Walt discusses how the program’s policies are designed to minimize suicide behavior, thereby preserving mission effectiveness through individual readiness for soldiers, their families, and Department of the Army civilians.
