On March 5, 2019 the Executive Order (EO) 13861 (the President’s Roadmap to Empower Veterans and End a National Tragedy of Suicide or PREVENTS) was signed. The goal is to create a Roadmap that will reduce suicide by empowering veterans to pursue an improved quality of life, prioritizing research, and establishing collaboration across the public and private sectors. The Roadmap will use a public health approach with the goal of changing the approach to how veteran suicide is discussed and prevented.
