Training the trainers on suicide prevention
Trainers and training participants pause for a group photo after a five-day Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (Training for Trainers) workshop, October 20, 2017. Soldiers and Army Civilians from across the country attended the workshop at the Army Reserve’s 85th Support Command headquarters in Arlington Heights, Illinois to learn how to present an ASIST workshop. ASIST, developed in 1983, is known as suicide first aid. The ASIST model teaches effective intervention skills for someone who may be contemplating suicide. (U.S. Army Reserve photo by Anthony L.
