White House Condolence Letter Policy

PETITION to the President of the United States, Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC
 

Mr. President, we the undersigned volunteers, supporters and staff of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention urge you to reduce stigma and prevent suicide by:

(1)    Changing the long standing White House policy of not sending condolence letters to the families of military personnel who die in theatre by suicide.

(2)    Continuing your support of the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs as they create and implement programs and services to prevent suicide in the active military and among our veterans.

Thank you Mr. President for raising the level of conversation regarding suicide as a serious public health problem  and for supporting efforts to prevent loss of life from suicide.
