During the war against Japan, there were 2 facets of American suicide prevention programs among the Japanese. One was a research program, carried out by Benedict & Hashima, in the Foreign Morale Analysis Division. The 2nd facet was the suicide prevention program itself, which was put into effect toward the end of the war. This program of action was undertaken by American GIs. The author states that these activities merit a place in the annals of suicide prevention programs. (37 refs.)
