Fort Campbell Suicide Prevention Efforts Target a Killer

 

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and the 101st is ready to Stand Up to Suicide

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – While suicide has long been believed to be a silent killer, the command at Fort Campbell and the 101st Airborne Division believe the warning signs often sound the loudest alarms. Knowing those warning signs can mean the difference between life and death.

“We would like our soldiers to look at brain injuries and illnesses much in the same way they look at physical injuries and illnesses,” said Maj. Gen. James C. McConville, commanding general of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and Fort Campbell. “Prevention and early intervention are the secrets to success. Our Soldiers don’t have problems going to see a doctor when they are physically injured or ill, yet they are sometimes reluctant to do so with behavioral health issues. Knowing this, we are putting embedded behavioral health teams at the brigade level to provide this service at the point of need and make it more convenient to get.”

The Department of the Army has designated September as Army Suicide Prevention Month. Communicating with others is the first step toward preventing suicide. Reaching out for help is not a sign of weakness – it is a sign of strength.
