Suicide prevention is an all hands evolution, all of the time. Peer-to-peer products, using approved OPNAV N171 messaging, help promote awareness and encourage bystander intervention. Sailors are encouraged to submit their original posters and awareness products for review by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every Sailor, Every Day Video
Navy Suicide Prevention Branch (OPNAV N171) and Navy Medicine have released a new video to help the entire Fleet expand the Every Sailor, Every Day campaign concept at the individual and command levels. Now available in the Navy.mil video gallery, the 17-minute “Every Sailor, Every Day” video uses a realistic scenario to illustrate active leadership and peer engagement. The video can be used as part of training or educational events to encourage ongoing and proactive engagement between shipmates, strengthening connections that can facilitate early recognition and intervention. It is intended to generate dialogue and discussion to guide suicide prevention efforts and to help build confidence in one’s ability to provide support.
