Soldiers learn to prevent suicide
from Pacific Daily News
Soldiers in the U.S. Army Reserve underwent a new training program that incorporates interactive role-playing in order to understand the complications of suicide intervention. The reservists were asked to role-play situations where they could act as the caregiver or counselor to someone contemplating suicide. The soldiers went through two days of Applied Suicide Skills Training, also known as ASIST, which combines a day of classroom lectures and another day of hands-on training for suicide prevention, said Capt. Roland Geyrozaga, a chaplain and ASIST instructor with the 9th Mission Support Command.
