Fleet Family Support Center


Beginning on September 1 and continuing for the whole month, be on the lookout for specially painted rocks with words of encouragement, healing and awareness for Suicide Prevention Month.  If you come upon a rock in the Fleet and Family Support Center vicinity, make sure to take a picture of, or with, it and post to your social media with the hashtag #BeThere or #ConnectToProtect.  Also be sure to tag FFSC Rota Spain so it can be shared on our FFSC Facebook page.  Stop by FFSC (Building 3293) with the rocks for your prize!!!!  Remember, it's up to each of us to take action - build connections, share inspiration, lead by example, include conversations....suicide prevention is everyone's responsibility
