Project 1 Small ACT empowers behavior change by providing Sailors and their families with suicide prevention and stress management resources, messaging and guidance. The project promotes ongoing and active engagement to enable early recognition of suicide risk, encourage proactive intervention and champion seeking help for psychological health-related challenges.
The Every Sailor, Every Day Story
In September 2015, 1 Small ACT was launched to promote simple actions that make a difference in the lives of Sailors and support vital relationships between peers and community members. This message is based on Navy’s Ask Care Treat (ACT) model and aligns with broader collaborative communications efforts between the armed forces, Dept. of Defense Suicide Prevention Office (DSPO) and Veterans Affairs (VA) to promote the “Power of 1” concept. In October 2020, the 1 Small ACT message evolved to become Project 1 Small Act, a component of the Every Sailor, Every Day initiative within OPNAV N17. Project 1 Small ACT continues to focus on suicide prevention and stress management resources, messaging and guidance.
