The Army has officially declared a Stand Down to help prevent suicides. The Stand Down is broken into three phases. The first phase was completed March 15, and involved an interactive video that allowed viewers to choose the outcome of a Soldier showing suicidal tendencies. The next phase, which must be completed by July 15 is a chain teach. Following Phase I and II, each command will work to sustain the lessons learned and to provide additional tools necessary for their unique environments and operational tempo to combat the issues that lead to suicide.
