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).

**Post a picture of your favorite military spouse below and let’s give them extra thanks today!**

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan established Military Spouse Appreciation Day with Proclamation 5184, recognizing the countless sacrifices and contributions made by military spouses since the days of the Continental Army:

“[Military spouses] subordinated their personal and professional aspirations to the greater benefit of the service family. Responding to the call of duty, they frequently endured long periods of separation or left familiar surroundings and friends to reestablish their homes in distant places. And there they became American ambassadors abroad. As volunteers, military spouses have provided exemplary service and leadership in educational, community, recreational, religious, social and cultural endeavors. And as parents and homemakers, they preserve the cornerstone of our Nation’s strength — the American family.”

Being a military spouse is not just a description based upon a husband or wife’s job — it’s a total lifestyle commitment that requires each spouse to have his or her own sense of duty, honor and patriotism.

Mental health is a crucial part of disaster recovery. We have dedicated and trained volunteers like Tess to help consider the unique needs of each individual impacted by disasters.

For those unfamiliar with the terminology, deploying is when we assign someone to a specific disaster response and volunteers can deploy in both an in-person or virtual capacity. In this case, Tess is deployed virtually.

“In order to connect with you, I have to connect with something in myself that knows that feeling.”

We talk about the difference of empathy and sympathy a lot in our ASIST trainings and how it plays a huge role in a successful intervention or helping situation with Suicide first aid.

Empathy is a key to connecting with a person who is struggling or at risk. It offers compassion, respect and just simply shows an overall concern and the will to take your “helping” a step further when you aren’t being asked to.

~Do something small to make a big difference~

Doing this can help you get back a sense of control that maybe you feel this quarantine has taken from you!

Hey everyone, here's our next video! We are going to be talking about grounding and how it can be used to help us regain control and rest our minds when we feel like our emotions are getting the better of us.

Let us know how you ground yourself in the comments below.

Spiritual Wellness is one of the five pillars of strength that our force recognizes through R3SP Campaign Plan.

We are thankful to our Chaplains that continue to offer religious support and guidance during this time!

With the observation of upcoming religious holidays for many different faiths, our chaplains are busy visiting and spending time with Soldiers and Airmen that are activated during the COVID-19 response. The chaplains are providing messages of hope and prayer for our Guardsmen as they continue to support the citizens of Louisiana in this time of need. #GeauxGuard #ProtectWhatMatters Chaplain Corp of Louisiana Army National Guard 159th Front Porch

“Commodities distribution is a mission that we are wholly familiar with from the various natural disasters that we have responded to in the past,” said Col. Willus B. Hall, commander of the 139th Regional Support Group. “One key difference here though, is that instead of saving lives using high water vehicles and helicopters, we are saving lives by ensuring critical medical supplies like ventilators get where they need to go in a timely fashion.”

LANG Sexual Harassment/Assault Response Program - SHARP

Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM) is recognized in April by both civilian and military communities. The Department of Defense observes SAAPM by focusing on creating the appropriate culture to eliminate sexual assault and requiring a personal commitment from all Service members at every level. We all have a part in combating sexual assault and SAAPM offers an excellent opportunity to focus attention on our individual roles.

We all have a role in preventing sexual assault!

#postsomethingpositive

Times like this can really make our negativity bias kick in and it can be hard to focus on anything good. You really have to “hunt” for the good stuff and reflect on how it made you feel, what you contributed to making it happen and how you can make more “good” continue to happen in the future.

Sometimes sharing your own positivity can help someone else so, we want to hear from you!

Comment below and let us know something positive that has happened in your life in the last few weeks. Small or big, it all counts! If someone was a part of that “positive” be sure to tag them and let them know 🙂
