The La National Guard R3SP page is designed to allow LANG Soldiers, Families and DA Civilians to stay up-to-date on the latest news, events and programs associated with the LANG Resilience, Risk Reduction and Suicide Prevention Program.

Mission: What does our Resilience team do? Our program was established to increase the resiliency of our force by providing training to ensure resources and intervention measures are in place. Our mission is to promote awareness and educational programs detailing both early warning signs and high risk factors. RESILIENCE Master Resiliency Trainer: MRTs have the skills and techniques that build resilience and can in turn teach other Soldiers those same skills. MRTs assess a unit and provide unit specific training to help increase the resiliency level. Resiliency Trainer Assistant: RTAs assist MRTs with assessing and training resiliency. It is recommended that for every one MRT there are three RTA’s. Together they make a Resilience Team. SUICIDE PREVENTION ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) Gatekeepers: Gatekeepers provide suicide first aid interventions. They are able to: identify people who have thoughts of suicide, seek an understanding of the reasons for those thoughts and the reasons for living, and review risk and develop a safety plan. The ACE-SI (Ask-Care-Escort - Suicide Intervention): ACE-SI is 4-hour one time mandatory training for E-5’s and above. It fulfills the requirement of Suicide Awareness Training for the Training Year. ACE (Ask Care Escort): Suicide Awareness is an annual requirement for all Soldiers. This is a one hour training for enlisted (E4 and below) and one hour training for leaders (E5 and above).

All stages of a potential suicide situation should be taken seriously. Being proactive in supporting someone to get help and connected to resources can hopefully mitigate their stressors from getting bigger.

The Importance of Self-care - #BeThe1To

It is always good to remind each other to practice self care every once and a while.

Similar to maintaining your vehicle, if you don’t spend time on routine maintenance for yourself, some part of you will eventually break down.

Also don’t forget to check in on your friends, family, colleagues, and peers! You never know what a simple, “Hey, how are you doing?”, can do to turn someone’s day around.

A common statement we often hear is that the resilience skill of “Hunt the Good Stuff” is the easiest, so it’s taught the most.

It may be easy to teach but this skill is difficult for many to actually do! As humans, we get stuck in the negativity bias. Our mind automatically takes us to the negative side of whatever we are experiencing which can cause us to ultimately overreact or react in a manner that is not beneficial to us or those around us. This can increase stress and anxiety while decreasing our focus and energy level.

While COVID-19 and Hurricane Laura have brought us plenty of reasons to fall into the negativity bias, I challenge you to Hunt the Good Stuff. (hence the word “Hunt” because it isn’t easy to always find the “good”.)

Comment below with something good that you’ve identified today and tag a friend that may find this information helpful!

I want to again thank President Trump for his quick approval of my request for a major disaster declaration, which brings assistance to some of the parishes most impacted by Hurricane Laura, and I want to encourage anyone from these five parishes to apply for assistance today. For the people in other parishes that were impacted, but not yet approved for aid, please know that we will continue damage assessments and do expect additional parishes to be authorized. We will fight for all Louisianans who were in Laura’s path to get the assistance they need to recover and rebuild.

Tornadoes can quickly spin up and spin down along the outer bands of a hurricane, and many times they are rain wrapped. Make sure you know what to do and where to go should a warning be issued for your area. Additionally, it's important to have ways to receive these warning should you lose power. The free Red Cross Emergency App is available at redcross.org/apps. Or, you can text: “GETEMERGENCY” to 90999. Check to see if your local news station meteorologists have an app as well, and assure Emergency Alerts are activated in your phones settings.
