This article discusses a review conducted during a panel meeting in December 1984. The panel found the rate of suicide in the Army was not significantly different from the general population of the United States. The Army suicide rate had averaged just over 11 per 100,000. During this meeting the members also discuss proactive measures to prevent loss of life due to suicide, including teaching leaders to recognize warning signs and where to refer them for help.
