2014 Navy Suicide Prevention Month
"Every Sailor, Every Day"

Suicide Prevention Month is a launchpad for year-long engagement across the Navy, ultimately fostering sustainable initiatives that support resilience and seeking help as a sign of strength. Starting in September with and continuing through FY-15, Navy will promote the message “Every Sailor, Every Day” to encourage all Sailors, leaders, families and members of the Navy community to strengthen their connections with those around them. Emphasis will be placed on peer support, individual responsibility, open communication and bystander intervention as ongoing contributors to resilience and protective factors against suicide. 

There is no mandatory project or activity for 2014 Suicide Prevention Month. Rather—to emphasize ongoing commitment to supporting Every Sailor, Every Day—commands are encouraged to utilize Navy Suicide Prevention Month products and messaging to tailor efforts at the deckplate that encourage open communication, individual responsibility, peer support and bystander intervention skills all year long. Command Suicide Prevention Coordinators will be provided with initial information and resources to kick-off their efforts prior to September.

Throughout the month, the Navy Suicide Prevention Branch will release supporting products including information sheets, blog posts, social media messages, videos and more. From 1 - 30 September, we will also run "I Pledge to ACT," a web-based effort encouraging all Sailors, families and members of the Navy community to take steps to build personal resilience, support their shipmates and intervene if they notice signs of distress. The pledge is completely anonymous and will be available to all audiences. More information will be released on this page and through our social media channels. 

All products will be posted on this page as they are available.  Follow us on Facebook, Wordpress and Twitter for the latest updates and social media messages.
