Suicide, stigma associated with accessing services, and substance abuse are real issues for the military. Although military social workers lead the field in these issues, there is always more work to be done. The civilian world is watching as the military works toward assuring access to services that will help their personnel. In fact, many programs developed within the military have been reproduced for a civilian environment. At the same time, there are programs outside of the military that could be tailored to help military personnel. In this Discussion, you consider other steps the military could take in the areas of suicide, stigma, or substance abuse.
To prepare for this Discussion, read the case study, “Working With Clients With Suicidal Ideations: The Case of Denise,” located in the Learning Resources.
