(7)

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).

Today we had the opportunity to train the soldiers of D Co 2-156th in Thibodaux, LA. It’s always an extra treat to be able to watch promotions happen during our visit.

We instructed their annual Suicide Awareness training and the Alcohol and Substance Abuse program briefed their annual training as well.

Additionally, all of the first line leaders became certified in ACE-SI (Ask, Care, Escort-Suicide Intervention).

D Co 2-156th is now #ready and #resilient! Congratulations!

We all have leadership tanks. Full tanks keep us inspired, effective, & committed to reaching our leadership potential.

The problem is our tanks also have holes.
How do you keep your leadership tank full?

Lead well this week, friends...with a full tank.

“Difficult days are so much easier when you know you’ve got someone there for you.”

Pick up the phone, send a text, stop by in person. Have you checked in with a friend or loved one today?

"Today was a Difficult Day," said Pooh.

There was a pause.

"Do you want to talk about it?" asked Piglet.

"No," said Pooh after a bit. "No, I don't think I do."

"That's okay," said Piglet, and he came and sat beside his friend.

"What are you doing?" asked Pooh.

"Nothing, really," said Piglet. "Only, I know what Difficult Days are like. I quite often don't feel like talking about it on my Difficult Days either.

"But goodness," continued Piglet, "Difficult Days are so much easier when you know you've got someone there for you. And I'll always be here for you, Pooh."

And as Pooh sat there, working through in his head his Difficult Day, while the solid, reliable Piglet sat next to him quietly, swinging his little legs...he thought that his best friend had never been more right."
A.A. Milne

Sending thoughts to those having a Difficult Day today and hope you have your own Piglet to sit beside you 🧡

Another unit finally home! Welcome back!

It was my honor and privilege to welcome the members of the 39th Military Police Company back to the United States after their overseas deployment. So inspiring to be in the company of men and women of such character. Looking forward to their welcome home ceremony in Louisiana! #Protectwhatmatters! #GeauxGuard 139th Regional Support Group

When something happens that creates a negative thought, take a moment to think about how that negative thought will affect your mood and energy and how you will react to it.

If the consequences that come after that reaction are negative, try to manage your thoughts and reroute them to be more realistic and positive. You will notice that your mood and energy aren’t so negatively affected!

Deployment is Not a Casual Word

This is a beautiful video that describes a little about what deployment is like for those spouses and children back on the home front.

If you are a friend, parent or loved one of a military spouse or soldier who is deployed, has deployed or is coming home, this is so good to watch! It will help you gain some insight into the feelings, emotions and realities that your loved one is experiencing.

Today is my self care day~

After a long weekend of training, the coolest coffee shop and a visit with a friend and her new baby is just what I need!

Self care should not replace professional assistance of course but it can be a great way to relieve stress.

Sometimes we just need to get our own batteries recharged so we can tackle the week ahead!

What do you do for self care?

Congrats to these 40 Louisiana National Guard soldiers who completed ASIST training this weekend. They learned how to safely and successfully intervene with persons in a suicide crisis.

The 205th EN BN has requested this training specifically for their soldiers, numerous times over the last three years! We appreciate their support in our program.

Great job everyone!!

Lately, we’ve noticed an increase in the need for financial and other types of resources.

If you have never heard of a Family Assistance Specialist, they are an amazing resource for our soldiers and families.

You will want to identify the region your HOR falls in and that would be the specialist to contact to get assistance.

LA National Guard soldiers and family members: If you need assistance, call the Family Assistance Specialist for the area where you live.

“Experts have studied the cycle of emotions military families encounter during deployment and have found certain emotional characteristics can be identified through different phases throughout each deployment. Every military family will have a different set of challenges when experiencing deployments. Likewise, each member of a military family will have different reactions based on their unique placement in the family.”

If you’re worried about deployments, we’re here to help.

Suicide prevention hotline to have three-digit number for mental health emergencies: 988

“The three-digit number is really going to be a breakthrough in terms of reaching people in a crisis,” said Dwight Holton, CEO of Lines for Life, a suicide prevention nonprofit. “No one is embarrassed to call 911 for a fire or an emergency. No one should be embarrassed to call 988 for a mental health emergency."

Amazing news!!!

“988” instead of “1-800-273-8255”

When the months-long process is completed, U.S. residents will be able to call 988 for help in a mental health emergency.

This group of participants did an amazing job over the last three days. They learned valuable tools to save the lives of persons at risk of suicide.

Soldiers from the 256, 139th and 204th successfully completed ACE-SI and ASIST. They are ready, willing and able to help soldiers and civilians who are experiencing thoughts of suicide.

Day two of training is going great! These soldiers started off their next two days of training with ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training).

ASIST is trained all over the WORLD with more than 1 million people being trained in the same exact skills they are learning here in LA. ASIST is a “common language” across many countries. It’s amazing to know just how big our Suicide safer communities are.

Today we had the pleasure of getting trained in “Mind & Body” exercises by the American Red Cross of Louisiana.

I won’t share names, but I am pretty sure a few of the participants caught a short nap as they learned how to breathe correctly and relax the way you are meant to when your mind is free from stress !
