Belvoir hosting ACE Suicide Prevention training


Provided by Suicide Prevention Program manager

ACE is the Army-approved model for suicide prevention and awareness training and provides an easy-to-remember acronym that any Soldier, leader, civilian, or family member can use. Training modules are on the Army Suicide Prevention Web site, www.preventsuicide.army.mil.

The site includes training modules for suicide prevention for everyone and for ACE-SI training, which represents Act, Care, Escort – Suicide Intervention.

Training Qualifications

There are no qualifications required to conduct ACE training.

Commanders may select key personnel to serve as ACE trainers for their organizations. ACE–SI trainers are also selected by commanders, but ACE-SI trainers must be E-5 and above and are certified by attending training workshops conducted by the Suicide Prevention Program Manager.

These people can be military or civilian and are qualified to conduct ACE–SI workshops. These people are also ideally suited to conduct ACE training for their assigned organizations.

Belvoir hosts an upcoming ACE-SI train-the-trainer session from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m., June 21 at in Barden Education Center’s Room 101. If you, someone you know or someone in your unit is an E-5 or above and are interested in attending, contact Milagros Frank, Suicide Prevention Program manager, 703-805-5529, milagros.frank.civ@mail.mil to register. Seating is limited.
