Adverse legal actions can have a sudden and significant effect in the life of a Soldier, such as loss of money, benefits, privileges, employment, and liberty. As a result, Soldiers facing adverse legal actions may show signs of depression, hopelessness, or suicidal ideations because of their adverse legal actions. A trial defense lawyer can discuss and assist Soldiers with their adverse legal action.

Terrain Walk

The intent of the "terrain walk" for suicide prevention is to link leaders and their Soldiers with posts, camps, and stations activities and agencies that support Health Promotion, Risk Reduction, Suicide Prevention and Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness (CSF2) resources and services to our Army Family (e.g. ASPP, ASAP, Behavioral Health, Soldier Centers, Family Life Chaplain, Command Chaplain, Military and Family Life Consultants, ACS, CSF2 Centers, Employee Assistance Program, etc). The "terrain walk" should not be taken lightly or done on the cheap. This is the Commander's tool to place his/her leaders, and Soldiers and Civilians on the battlefield against suicide, to reinforce shared experience and build unit spirit.
