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.
Note: Due to the severity of the topic, this app contains many videos segments and may take up extra memory and time to download. Video must be downloaded while connected by wifi.
Users are prompted to enter phone number for people who will respond in a time of crisis.
The help Center comes pre-loaded with phone numbers for suicide prevention hotlines and it is then customizable by each individual user.
