Tell us: Could software help prevent suicide?

Beginning in February, the Army plans to provide commanders with a new software program called the "Commander's Risk Reduction Dashboard," which gathers information from a variety of Army databases on soldiers' high-risk behaviors (positive drug tests, alcohol incidents, violence) commonly associated with suicide.

If a commander is concerned about a soldier, he can use the dashboard's report to figure out the best strategy for an intervention.

Could this high-tech approach help prevent soldier suicides?
