The Department of Defense Suicide Prevention Task Force on the Prevention of Suicide by Members of the Armed Forces, which was established in August 2009, prepared this report for the Secretary of Defense, detailing the research, results, and recommendations from a year-long review of data, studies, programs, and discussions with service members, their families, and their caregivers. The intent of this report is to provide the Secretary of Defense and Department of Defense (DoD) leadership with actionable and measurable recommendations for policy and programs designed to prevent suicide by members of the Armed Forces.
