Operation Reach Out is a free app that targets military personnel, although it is a great app for anyone. The unique thing about this app is it offers videos of people explaining suicide prevention and awareness. It makes the message much easier to receive. There is also resource information in the application, mainly for military.
This is a great free app to have to get more education on suicide awareness and prevention. I would recommend keeping the information on the app to give to people you have contact with that are thinking of suicide.
From the App:
OPERATION REACH OUT is designed to:
Encourage people to reach out for help when they are having suicidal thoughts.
Help those who are concerned about family members, spouses, or fellow service members who may be suicidal. Provide a personal contact help center. Provide activities to help people who are depressed stay connected to others.
Operation Reach Out is part of MCA-D’s effort to provide timely and effective support and guidance for military families.
