Suicide Prevention Month raises awareness, promotes understanding
September is Suicide Prevention Month throughout the United States. During the month, organizations provide information about identifying warning signs of suicide, increase the understanding of what leads to suicide and promote helpful resources. The Air Force encourages Airmen who identify an individual considering suicide to use the A.C.E. model: ask directly if a person is considering suicide, care by actively listening and removing means for self-injury, and escort the person to a helping organization. For more information, visit the Air Force suicide prevention website at www.af.mil/Suicide-Prevention. (U.S. Air Force illustration by Airman 1st Class Kathryn R.C. Reaves)
