DoD tests VR suicide prevention training at Scott and Travis AFBs
TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, CA, UNITED STATES
02.19.2021

Leaders from across the 60th Air Mobility Wing at Travis took part in a suicide prevention, virtual reality training test phase Feb. 17 – 19.

The 30-minute training is aimed to help Airmen’s comfort in engaging with others to prevent suicide.

The training involves participants putting on a virtual reality headset and entering a scenario in which they interact with a person who is in obvious emotional distress. The goal is for the participant to convince the distressed person to get help. If participants don’t ask the distressed person the right questions to prompt them to get help, a training coach chimes in to assist the participant.
