Defense Suicide Prevention Office


The Defense Suicide Prevention Office, or DSPO, was established in 2011, when the Secretary of Defense designated a Defense Health Board Task Force to examine efforts to prevent military suicide. The creation of DSPO was the result of the task force’s recommendations.

DSPO leads suicide prevention efforts in the Defense Department by advancing policy, oversight, program evaluation and engagement to save the lives of service members, their families and the military community.
