I came across the Operation Reach Out app upon the recommendation of SFC Joseph Kern, the R3SP Program manager here at JFHQ for the NJ National Guard. I downloaded it to my phone and began looking at the resources, videos and activities included in the app. As the Suicide Prevention Program Manager for the State Guard, I will be sure to recommend to every soldier trained that they download this life-saving resource on their phones.Michael P.

As I looked through the app, what caught my attention is the way the army’s ACE (Ask, Care, Escort) interventional tool is woven throughout the app. Though it is not specifically called ACE, the principles of it are inherent in each video vignette to help either the individual in crisis or friends of the individual in crisis.
Having worked on a suicide help line in NJ in the past, this app would be valuable for that type of work as well. KUDOS for offering lifesaving help in your Operation Reach Out app.”
