Currently, many countries are discussing the problem of suicide among young people, especially common among men, as well as its negative impact on society. The reasons for the formation of suicidal behavior may be difficulties in adapting to a new environment, conflict in relationships, family and household problems, deteriorating health, violence and bullying. The main method of combating the suicide epidemic is the prevention of suicidal behavior.

Military personnel in a difficult situation are asked not to rush into making a decision, not to be afraid or embarrassed to seek help from a psychologist, and to value life. To prevent the manifestation of suicidal tendencies, a person needs to understand that any conflict can be resolved, and emotional stress can be controlled through regular walking, physical activity and sports. Turning to a psychologist for help will help a person find a way out of a stressful situation, change his attitude towards difficulties and perceive them as a starting point for positive changes, strengthen emotional stability, not become dependent on alcohol, gambling, etc., overcome manipulative behavior, learn to get out from conflict situations without harm to the psyche, build trusting relationships with others.

It should be noted that a Memorandum of Cooperation and an Agreement on Dual Education were concluded between the Kazakh-American Free University and military unit No. 27943 named after Khalyk Kaharmany Kasym Kaysenov.
