Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training
08/25/2018 | Article by: William Banks
Recently, SFC Alexander Wellman (1-304), SFC Jeremy Anderson (1-320), and SSG Shawn Thacker (1-320) completed the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training, Train for Trainers (ASIST T4T) course developed by LivingWorks, Inc.
The ASIST T4T course is 5 days of intensive Suicide Intervention training which qualifies graduates to give the two day Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) course to others.
Since all three NCO’s had previously completed the Army’s Ask, Care, Escort Suicide Intervention Train the Trainer (ACE-SI T4T) course, they are now all certified Gatekeepers per AR 600-63, qualify for the Additional Skill Identifier of 1S, and, most importantly, stand ready to either provide Suicide Prevention training to their fellow Soldiers, or to assist Soldiers in need who may be struggling with suicidal ideations. What a superb display of caring leadership! Victory Team!
