  • Sgt. Mellanie Cadwell, a Master Resiliency Trainer from the 86th Combat Support Hospital, and Fred Holly, the audiovisualist for Blanchfield Army Community Hospital, produced this Suicide Prevention video to show the many different angles of suicide.

Outside of the opening statement and the closing statement, the video is not scripted.  The stories shared are real personal stories, lending credibility and sincerity to the video.

The individuals who were interviewed showed unique perspectives on suicide through their personal stories. One attempted suicide while she was a military spouse while another was just a child when his mother attempted suicide. A medical provider talks about suicide within her ranks and a battle buddy speaks up about the effects of suicide within the unit.

No profession or rank is exempt for the dark reaches of suicide.  It affects everyone, from the person with the suicidal ideations to the friends and family left behind.  It's not a final answer, instead it generates many more questions. In the aftermath in a death by suicide, we experience confusion, anger, frustration and the never ending question 'Why?' circling in the minds of everyone that was affected.

You and your family are important to your unit, the Army and the Nation.  You are a part of a team, a bigger Army family who will reach out to you in times of need.  This Army Family is stronger when everyone practices safety measures at work, at home and in daily activities. We are stronger when Soldiers are healthy and feel valued. If you are having suicidal thoughts or know someone who is in crisis and needs emotional support, remember ACE: Ask, Care and Escort. Don't leave anyone alone in a critical time. Care for them and escort them to professional help. If you or someone you know needs help, call the Military Crisis Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK.
