(OCAR), and Director, Army National Guard (ARNG) will implement a suicide prevention chain teach event to all leaders (squad leaders and above) in the
timelines outlined. The overall intent is for leaders at each echelon to
explain their intent, expectations, and the roles of their subordinate leaders
in preventing deaths by suicide. At the end of the chain teach, each leader
should know their roles and responsibilities and the resources available to
them for the suicide prevention program. Above all, leaders must convey at
all echelons the criticality of taking care of Soldiers and Families and their
commitment to helping their subordinates in accomplishing that mission. In
support of this chain teaching effort, the DCS, G1 Army Resilience Directorate
has established a milSuite Group at the following link with resources for
commanders to leverage in accomplishing this mission.
