ONE SERVICE MEMBER COMMITS SUICIDE EACH DAY AND SUICIDE NOW RANKS AS THE SECOND LARGEST CAUSE OF DEATH FOR SERVICE MEMBERS
Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 19, 2012
NewsWatch recently aired a piece focusing on the effects of psychological stress as a result of deployment among our veterans. The piece highlighted how service members and their families should feel comfortable reaching out to their units and chain of command for support. Not only do they bear the great responsibility of protecting our nation, but as Americans, it’s our duty to support their physical and psychological strength.
With the official Suicide Prevention Awareness Month over, the Real Warriors Campaign is asking Americans to help continue to spread the word about the many psychological health tools and resources available for active duty service members, members of the National Guard and reserve, veterans and military families coping with invisible wounds.
