To sustain a cohesive suicide prevention program which uses all resources to enhance caring relationships and personal resiliency of all in the Lawton/Fort Sill communities.
Suicide is complex. While a convergence of many factors may merely challenge one individual these same issues may be devastating to another. These differences lead to the idea that there are potentially protective factors that promote resilience and there are susceptibility factors (high stress, relationship issues, financial issues, etc.) that can lead to suicide. Increasing awareness of potential risk factors affecting Soldiers, Civilians and Family members will assist leaders and program/service providers to make timely and effective interventions.Resources
