dc.description.abstract According to the Department of Veterans Affairs’ 2018 Suicide Data Report, an average of 20 veterans commit suicide every day. The Army ACE Suicide Intervention Training is based on a battle buddy system and methods of observation for other soldiers in attempt to prevent suicide. The increasing number of suicides among soldiers indicates that the training is not persuasive enough for soldiers to overcome the stigma and seek help. This paper presents research into different methods of formulating suicide intervention training using a rhetorical approach to find improved ways to persuade soldiers who are dealing with intense stress or mental illness to speak up and ask for help.
