Trainers and participants pause for a group photo during the close out of the 85th USARC's 'Stand For Life' suicide prevention training, May 6-10, 2019, at the 85th USARSC headquarters. The week-long training event provided suicide prevention program liaisons, from the command's subordinate units, the opportunity to develop connections at the unit level and these connections will provide SPPLs with visibility, accountability, dialog and the support needed to break stigmas and identify authentic methods to successfully escort a Soldier to safety, away from suicidal ideations. Across the course of the training, numerous stories were shared from trainers and participants on how suicide impacted them but also shared and taught was how to be aware of those suffering from ideations and how to be there for those in need.
