JOIN HERE!** Suicide – it’s a word that we don’t talk about, wrapped in mystery, stigma, shame, and misunderstanding. This is the first challenge; having a healthy and beneficial discussion about a crisis that every year takes more than 45,000 lives in the US. The second challenge, raising public awareness that suicide is now an epidemic. More than 1 in 300 people attempt suicide each year in the US and 1 in 20 consider suicide. The third challenge, understanding that the professionals alone cannot solve the crisis. Building a culture of health takes the work of the entire community working as one. The “professionals” are the last line of defense on the proverbial bridge in the moment of crisis. It is the ordinary citizen in the factories and fields, the civic and faith groups that can stop those at risk from going to the bridge in the first place. AFM’s Intervene Challenge addresses the challenges above by training individuals from all walks of life in the skills that save lives. Just as CPR helps an individual having a heart attack, suicide intervention is first aid for the mind. Curriculum in the Intervene Challenge The Intervene Challenge offers several delivery methods for raising awareness and gaining skills that save lives. From one-hour lunch and learns to the two-day world class Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST). Listen-Learn-Lead© (L3 ) is our primary curriculum in the Intervene Challenge. L3 is typically a five hour in class training developed by US ARMY Chaplain (LTC) Kenneth Koon based on his work in conducting more than 1,000 successful suicide interventions in both military and civilian communities.
