Gerald Felder (left, front row), suicide program manager, 143rd Sustainment Command (Expeditionary), and his students enrolled in an Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) and Ask, Care, Escort-Suicide Intervention (ACE-SI) workshop conducted April 15-17, 2016, in Orlando, Fla., watch a roleplay scenario depicting a young man determined to end his misery by taking his own life. Roleplaying was one of the many interactive activities that taught 27 Soldiers and civilians from the 143rd ESC how to provide immediate and effective care to individuals contemplating suicide through ASIST’s scientific yet compassionate approach to connecting the potential victim with caring individuals and life-saving resources. Suicides in the Army ranks rose sharply from 45 in 2001 to 165 in 2012. Three years later, this all-time high dropped by nearly 20 percent thanks in part to interactive programs like ASIST.
