I wrote "Culture of Stigma Is a Key Cause of Military, Veteran Suicides" -- http://tinyurl.com/StigmaMilitary -- to highlight how essential addressing stigma is in countering this tragedy. The post concludes with this proposition: "If stigma ingrained in military culture is a force that is stopping suicide prevention programs from working effectively, then the vital question to answer is, What is military (and civilian) leadership doing -- besides issuing orders, which is a necessary but not sufficient step -- to decisively lessen the stigma against help-seeking that is killing so many of those whose sacrifices make our freedom possible?"
