This year, the Department of Defense theme is, "Small Steps Save Lives," which focuses on the small changes service members and their families can make at home. The most common method of military suicides are deaths by firearm. In addition, medications lead in non-fatal suicide attempts. "Small Steps Save Lives" puts the emphasis on habits and practices. “Make it Your Mission to #BeThere,” is the DoD tagline that reinforces the call to action that everyone—leaders, service members and their support network—has a role in supporting suicide prevention.
