In March 2009, the vice chief of staff of the Army released the Army Campaign Plan for Health Promotion, Risk Reduction and Suicide Prevention, and chartered the Army Suicide Prevention Task Force and the Army Suicide Prevention Council. Since that time, the Army has invested tremendous effort in investigating the causes of suicide within its ranks and in implementing policies and programs whose sole purpose is to promote resilience, prevent suicides, and enhance the readiness of the Force. One such program is the Performance Triad which focuses on monitoring one's activity, nutrition and sleep as a means of fortifying Soldiers' readiness and resilience. and keeping Soldiers fit to fight.
