In a 2 yr retrospective study, suicide prevention efforts produced a significant reduction in suicide attempts at a Navy training command. Evidence was presented that suicide prevention may be a more pressing issue at training commands than operational commands. The approach described focused on instructors rather than on the students. Instructors were taught how to identify & help individuals at risk & how to get help for them. 14 refs.
