In accordance with Marine Corps Order 1720.2, a recently released MarineNet activation announcement, indicates every Marine Corps battalion and squadron must appoint a Suicide Prevention Program Officer (SPPO).

Each SPPO is required to complete MarineNet course MFCSPPO001.

The MairneNet course will educate SPPOs in prevention, intervention, reporting and response for suicide related incidents within their commands.

The course’s USMC SPPO Distance Learning Module includes the USMC Suicide Prevention Program and Suicide Prevention Program Officer Responsibilities.
