Did You Know?
Although some suicides are planned in advance, the majority of suicides and attempts occur within an hour of a crisis and are impulsive reactions to stress.  Numerous studies indicate that while easy​ access to a lethal method (means) of death reduces the likelihood of survival, limiting access to lethal methods can be life saving. Firearms are the most lethal and common method of suicide across both U.S. military and civilian populations. Learn more about Navy's guidance for reducing access to lethal means through voluntary storage of privately owned firearms in NAVADMIN 263/14.
