There is no shame in seeking help. Dr. James Helis of the Army Resiliency Directorate joins AUSA’s Dan Roper to talk about the Army Suicide Prevention Program. They discuss how the Army is addressing the complex challenge of death by suicide, and how it is taking steps to identify and influence the many factors that may help in preventing this harmful behavior. September may be Suicide Prevention Month but taking care of our Soldiers is a year-round activity.
