DoDSER Step-By-Step


Available below are updated instructions on completing the DoDSER (Department of Defense Suicide Event Report). For your convenience, you can download these instructions for quick reference here.


Step 1:  Go to the DODSER site at and click “register” at the top  or “enter” if already registered
Step 2: On the left menu under “DODSER OPTIONS” go to “create”
Step 3:  If you need to gather more information or finish later, you can go back and “recover DODSER” for 60 days.  For security reasons, the data will not be available for view after that time. 
Step 4:  If you want to be able to refer back to DODSER information, print a PDF of the completed DODSER.
For further assistance with completing the DoDSER, contact the Suicide Prevention Program Office at 901-874-6613.
