ASIST Training

Last month I taught a class for thirty soldiers on ways to intervene when someone they know is considering suicide. The training is Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) and is a two day training event. In the training we got to teach soldiers skills that can use on many different levels. The two days are spent teaching the soldiers by group training, small group sessions, group discussion and finally with participant role playing. It was a great two day event.

The 1st Air Cavalry Brigade (ACB) wrote an article that appeared in the Killeen Herald, in the Fort Hood Sentinel and on the front page of the Army's website. I thought you might like to see me at work. This is just one of the ways I get to help soldiers and their families. If you click on the link it will take you to the article.

If I do not talk to you before Christmas, have a Merry Christmas!!

Great Job on the ASSIST Class! It is always nice to be recognized for hard work--you deserve it! Good Job!
