An entire day of Army Suicide Prevention training at recruiting school

It's no secret that the military is facing a staggering suicide rate, more than one every day now. The trend was spotted years ago, and was the basis for justifying 2009's $125 Mil. 'Spiritual Fitness' nonsense. Since then, the suicide rate has skyrocketed, as more and more money is being wasted on a religious approach to a mental health problem.Since I made that info-graphic a few months back, the Army's data suggests an even bigger increase may be looming.
