  • Memoir: Suicide Prevention (Viet Nam Era) - Everything2.com
    confidence Why hadn t the woman tried Family Services on her own I don t know She chose the civilian community s suicide intervention resource She had other options and she might have tried them too What s my point Another instance in which military and civilian resources collaborated and made the system work Returnee At about 11 PM one night I was working my shift at the SPS hotline desk A call came in from the switchboard supervisor at the city s telephone company The supervisor said she had a man on line and he was in a fury She couldn t handle him Would I take him I told her to let me have him and he was on It took a while to get him down to where he could speak coherently He was an enlisted man in from Viet Nam making his way to the East Coast His problem wasn t suicide it was homicide He was in a barroom he said drinking and minding his own business Shortly before his call another patron had ridiculed his uniform and his Service He had a weapon in his bag and had an almost overwhelming urge to use it A stranger in town passing through he felt he d better divert and talk to someone Searching for some means to vent his rage other than assault he had on impulse picked up the barroom phone and dialed the operator He must have come down real heavy on her and her supervisor he found himself of a sudden switched to a hotline worker at the local SPS We talked for more than three hours At the outset he was openly hostile demanded to know who I was and how the hell I had been loaded on to him When I told him he said he didn t know what suicide prevention was about and wanted no part of it But he didn t hang up and we never hung up on anyone In our give and take when he realized he was talking to someone who had more than a passing knowledge of the military who could respond in his jargon and relate to his lifestyle and to his feelings his hostility eased off Other feelings began to surface He admitted that he had been deeply shaken and enraged by his experiences during border crossings into Cambodia and he still carried the same almost overwhelming anger Without my bringing it up he confided that he d had intense thoughts about self injury even suicide and that the feelings had been strongest before taking off on missions The rage and the thoughts of suicide were still with him and looking back at them in calmer moments he said that he was alarmed by their intensity After a while he admitted reluctantly that he might need help He said he would think about seeking it out when he got to his permanent station At the close he was much calmer He phoned back a few hours later and told the hotline worker on duty that he was at the bus depot and would soon leave for the east He said to pass the word to me that he was OK Collaboration Eventually it became evident to me from my IG and SPS experiences that much could be accomplished through a carefully designed system for collaboration between military bases or other federal agencies in any given geographic area and the crisis intervention suicide prevention ci sp resources of adjacent civilian communities The potential for good was enormous not only for and within the military community but national as well I learned in time that I was not alone many others professionals and lay were thinking and active along similar lines I was convinced that the time was long past for both military and civilian managers and supervisors in both the public and private sectors to acquire basic indoctrination in ci sp as it pertained to the people that they commanded or supervised I wrote numerous letters on the issue recommending specific actions and continued doing so after I retired in 1974 My appeals went to the Federal Executive Congress and the media I stressed the urgent need for proactive command or agency wide training and motivational programs to confront the suicide phenomenon and get organized to reduce suicide attempts and deliberate self destructive behavior among military personnel members of their families and DoD and other Departments employees The essence of my appeal was first for a set of formal objectives for the federal military and civil services to move them toward collaboration with community resources that were engaged in grass roots suicide prevention in essence collaboration and teamwork between the federal government as an employer of people and the communities in which their people lived and worked If the concept could get a foot in the door at the federal level then state and county governments might hitch a ride on the system and ultimately so would private sector employers In made no difference which level took the initiative cross feed and human nature would eventually get the others interested The suicide trend the way I read the Public Health Service s statistics of the early and mid 70s was heading up Many government and private sector employers already had in house programs for stress management They also had employees who although lay persons had been trained and qualified to give emergency CPR and other forms of first aid at the work site So why not someone in the shop or office who was basically trained in suicide prevention and crisis intervention As with other on site emergency services this person who would have been trained and qualified to recognize discernible and professionally recognized signs that might precede a suicide attempt would consult with a supervisor and exercise his her judgment in getting the person in distress ASAP to professional help Community suicide prevention programs certified SP Centers informal hotlines Community Mental Health Centers etc had by that time become a fact of life they existed and were part of the system organized or ad hoc Proactive suicide prevention would generate its own force for being it would not get canceled like an aircraft ship or construction program to the contrary With oversight by reasonable and conscientious leaders managers and supporters suicide prevention would become ingrained omnipresent and a way of life in which everyone would play a vital role Naive Maybe maybe not What is vital to sustain suicide prevention is to spread the idea and make it everybody s business Making the idea acceptable as everybody s business would be everybody s job The everybody would include parents and teachers and counselors of children and youth police officers and rescue workers on the street and supervisors staff and union officials in the workplace It would be where people played in their neighborhoods and go along with each age group to where they would spend their retirement years For the elderly among whom depression and suicide rates are very high crisis intervention resources and suicide prevention and risk reduction depends on leaders and staff of health care institutions administrators and staff in retirement residence and convalescent communities senior centers AARP chapters and anywhere the elderly gather The reality would also depend on the elderly themselves individually and collectively e g to get past the long history they inherited of bigotry superstition and ignorance when it comes to mental health suicide and helping survivors of suicide Emphasis on adult education support group discussions and motivational training can help to reduce such barriers among middle year s adults parents of school age children as well as the elderly An article I wrote in 1984 Suicide Prevention Must Be Everybody s Business was published in the January 14 1985 issue of the Army Navy and Air Force Times It advocated an organized suicide prevention program within the military which would include training and involvement of all active duty military not confined to those in the medical and mental health fields I posed the questions a Does your base have a program whereby supervisors and co workers who might be confronted with suicidal people are trained to recognize the warning signs and refer potential suicides to professionals b Are any base personnel especially security police social actions or family support workers trained in crisis intervention techniques Are any of them volunteer workers in the local community s suicide prevention program c Does your base have any sort of arrangement with local suicide prevention centers or hotlines so that a civilian crisis worker can contact the base for information or assistance Do civilian volunteers know exactly whom to call for help when a military person or dependent threatens suicide d Do your base officials routinely check with local crisis clinics to find out the number and types of distress calls being received from military people Is this information analyzed to determine trends or patterns e Do your base mental health workers give talks to active duty and dependents groups on this subject Are civilian experts in suicide prevention brought on base to explain their services The following month February 22 1985 the Secretary of the Army and the Chief of Staff issued a Memorandum for Major Commands and Staff Agencies which stated in part The Department of the Army has developed a Suicide Prevention Strategy designed to help commanders deal with this problem Commanders must use this plan and complement it with initiatives tailored to specific needs Over the following months the Army issued implementing Departmental major command and subordinate level Regulations programs and guides Later that same year 1985 I secured copies of studies plans directives motivational guides and other documents published by NIMH the American Association of Suicidology AAS and the Army on their in house suicide prevention programs and which they provided to me in response to my appeals I published in book form the material that I received and marketed it on a not for profit basis to cover my printing and related costs My initial report printed on Feb 26 1971 during Viet Nam was Summary and Commentary on the Institute in Suicidology in Los Angeles January 23 27 1971 and had limited distribution within the Air Force and the next compilation was in June 1985 Military Civilian Teamwork in Suicide Prevention A subsequent update was published in 1988 Suicide Prevention Programs in the Department of Defense and the last update in 1994 returned to the original title Military Civilian Teamwork in Suicide Prevention My intent in collecting and disseminating to the general public the suicide prevention programs and practices of the Armed Forces NIMH and other contributors was to join the many lay persons like myself who had become involved Wide distribution might also promote cross feed and disclose conflicting policies and procedures The process itself I felt would encourage collaboration among professionals paraprofessionals and administrators and directors of suicide prevention entities in neighboring civilian communities Further I hoped that publicizing the Armed Forces plans and procedures for suicide prevention and crisis intervention would encourage other government entities to explore their need for comparable programs and that potentially beneficial methodologies might spin off to the private sector My continuing interest in proactive and organized suicide prevention efforts in the Armed Forces led me to write to then Secretary of Defense Les Aspin and to Senator Sam Nunn and Congressman Ronald Dellums in their responsibilities as Senate and House chairmen respectively of committees charged with the oversight of military affairs A copy of my letter to and the response from the Office of the Secretary of Defense is attached Programs A monumental medical and social advance was made in suicide prevention by the original U S Army Suicide Prevention Plan Feb 1985 prepared by the Directorate of Human Resources Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel The Plan called on each U S Army base to develop and publish an installation Suicide Prevention Plan The plan was to provide for active duty units Army families the Army Community and civilian employees of the Army Among its many initiatives were several concerned with collaboration with civilian communities and other public and private sector mental health and crisis intervention resources The Navy issued its program in 1987 and the Air Force issued formal policy guidance in 1997 on implementing their suicide prevention program Since the USAF 1997 policy statement follows my dated copies of the Army and Navy programs by about a decade I assume that it conforms to more recent DoD medical policies on the subject and perhaps even reviewed and commented upon by the other Services The following is from the USAF Policy Letter Digest December 1997 Source World Wide Web search title Air Force Policy Letter Digest Building Healthy Communities Intervention and Prevention The global mission of the Air Force requires airmen who are fit healthy and ready to deploy on a moment s notice To build healthy lifestyles and do it in the most cost effective manner the Air Force is investing in capabilities that promote prevention and intervention Put Prevention into Practice PPIP is a strategy developed by the U S Department of Health and Human Services which the Air Force has implemented to organize and guide the preventive medicine efforts of medical providers The first step in PPIP is the health enrollment assessment review HEAR which is conducted with each patient as he or she enrolls and which is then is updated annually Data from the HEAR helps to identify the health status and prevention needs of patients This data is used by major commands and the Air Staff to assure that resources are available to care for the populations assigned The second element of PPIP is the preventive health assessment PHA which in 1996 replaced the periodic physical examination program for all active duty members The PHA is a four stage process that includes a prevention oriented clinical screening occupational examination screening of military unique medical requirements and counseling The PHA will help ensure the highest rates of mission and mobility readiness by providing feedback to commanders on the health of their troops Air Force leadership is concerned about the ability of its members to cope with increasing levels of stress in the face of significant increases in operations tempo and force downsizing As a result the Air Force established an integrated product team IPT to evaluate suicides among active duty members and to develop strategies for suicide prevention and intervention The IPT identified numerous factors as leading causes of suicide service wide Chief among them were relationship difficulties members facing adverse actions viewed as career ending financial difficulties substance abuse and the perception that seeking help would have a negative impact on the individual s career After evaluating this information the team called in consultants from both the Air Force and public sector to develop a comprehensive approach to suicide prevention Since the inception of the suicide prevention IPT the suicide rate for active duty members has decreased by more than 35 percent This has been strong senior leadership awareness training for all Air Force members training at all levels of professional military education and the development of critical incident stress management teams at every installation The bottom line in successful suicide prevention is self aid and buddy care Everyone must lead the culture shift in the way prevention services are delivered and remove the stigma of seeking help The Air Force established policies providing limited confidentiality protection to service members experiencing personal problems and greatly expanded the proactive role of mental health service providers Various helping agencies in the Air Force such as family services chaplains mental health services substance abuse and health and wellness centers now work together to provide comprehensive prevention services that enhance both individual and organizational resilience In fact a civilian consultant hired by DoD to evaluate the military services suicide prevention programs praised the Air Force s program as one that is as advanced and enlightened as any I have heard of Commanders first sergeants first line supervisors and co workers must be aware of danger signs and encourage members to seek help Leaders should become familiar with Air Force Instruction AFI 44 154 Suicide Prevention Education and Community Training and AFI 44 153 Critical Incident Stress Management Base helping agencies are now working closely together under an integrated delivery system or IDS The IDS is designed to link base helping agencies to address risk factors reduce stress and improve the coping skills and general well being of individuals and families in the Air Force community Wing commanders received guidance on implementing this system for their units earlier this year Commanders at all levels can now work closely with the various agencies to offer a more comprehensive range of prevention services increase the protective factors and decrease the behavioral risk factors in the community As base agencies join ranks potential problems can be identified earlier and efforts taken more quickly to prevent tragic trends AIR FORCE INSTRUCTION 44 154 1 MARCH 1997 SUICIDE PREVENTION EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY TRAINING This instruction implements AFPD 44 1 Medical Operations concerning suicide prevention education and community training It establishes requirements and procedures for the conduct of general suicide prevention education and community training This instruction applies to all active duty Air Force Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve as well as Air Force civilian employees except for Title 32 U S C National Guard Technicians IAW Technician Personnel Regulation 100 172 1 Community Training Requirements 1 1 The Secretary of the Air Force will ensure that all Air Force personnel to include active duty guard and reserve as well as civilian employees receive training in general suicide prevention education at least on an annual basis including awareness of basic suicide risk factors and referral procedures for potentially at risk personnel Training programs will be designed to destigmatize help seeking behavior
