The Mission of the Resilience, Risk Reduction, & Suicide Prevention (R3SP) Program Office
The primary mission of the R3SP Program Office is to ensure the force is properly trained in the Resilience Skills provided by Comprehensive Soldier & Family Fitness (CSF2), Suicide Prevention Skills through the use of Ask, Care, Escort (ACE) training, and Suicide Intervention Skills provided by LivingWorks' Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST). This proactive approach ensures the force maintains an "Always Ready" posture.
The secondary mission of the R3SP Program Office is to ensure the death of any service member suspected of suicide is fully investigated, with a focus on areas where the National Guard can improve to lessen the likeliness that a service member will have thoughts of suicide.
The North Carolina National Guard's Resilience, Risk Reduction, & Suicide Prevention (R3SP) Program Office incorporates both the office of the State Resilience Coordinator (SRC) and the Suicide Prevention Program Manager (SPPM).
