Saving lives requires vigilance. Each tragic loss to suicide has far reaching impact on families, friends, and Marines left behind. At the unit level, suicide effects morale, unit cohesion, and ultimately unit effectiveness and readiness of Marines. Our prevention programs are designed to help Marines who are thinking about suicide or engaging in suicidal behavior, and those who may be at risk for suicide because of a mental disorder, or because they belong to a group with higher rates of suicide attempts or deaths. If you recognize warning signs or believe someone is in immediate danger, call 911 or seek help from a mental health care provider.
