JBSA Suicide Prevention Program

Not Every Fight is on the Battlefield

Suicide is a significant public health issue that impacts our service members, families, communities, and society at large. Policies, programs, training, and resources are available to support suicide prevention as a top priority for the military.

The Army Suicide Prevention Program (SP2) is an integral part of the Army’s Ready and Resilient Campaign. SP2 educates and trains active duty, Reserve and National Guard Soldiers, Army civilians and family members on suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention actions to minimize the risk for suicide to.

At JBSA, we provide resources for suicide prevention, intervention skills, and aim to build resiliency and improve the readiness of the Army through the development and enhancement of SP2 policies, training, data collection and analysis, and strategic communications designed to prevent suicide.
