September is Suicide Prevention Month. Risks for suicide include people with substance abuse problems, those experiencing loss or guilt, feelings of isolation, and those undergoing stress. This is why it is important for commanders at every level to know the Airmen they supervise. This commitment to connection is backed by the Air Force’s adoption of the ACE method, which stands for 'Ask, Care, Escort,' which guide Airmen when confronted with someone contemplating suicide. The Air Force Suicide Prevention website has more information on ACE and other resources. If you, or someone you know, needs immediate help, call the Military Crisis Line and speak to a counselor by dialing 800-273-TALK and pressing 1.
