Nebraska National Guard:
Suicide Prevention: Running Against the Stigma
The Nebraska National Guard is committed to building a suicide-safer community by reducing the stigma surrounding suicide. Suicide impacts service members, their families, civilian organizations that they are a part of, and our local communities. Throughout the year, training on suicide risk identification and intervention skills are offered through the National Guard with the hope that these skills will be used to provide assistance to the communities we live and work in.
Soldiers and their families are encouraged to log miles walked/run throughout the month of September. All participants will receive a flashlight to symbolize their dedication to being a light for someone walking in the darkness. There will be additional prizes for those who log the most miles during the month.
