Mental Fitness and Suicide Awareness (MFSA)
What is Mental Fitness? Why Suicide Awareness?
Mental fitness goes by many names such as mental toughness, psychological readiness, military resilience, mental health and psychological resiliency. Mental fitness is a state of well-being in which a person is psychologically and emotionally resilient. Being mentally fit means a person is able to cope effectively with the demands of the various military environments and lifestyle.
As a Health Promotion program and educational tool, the MFSA course prepares personnel in leadership positions to be aware of suicide, to use the ACE (Ask, Care, Escort) Intervention Model to practice suicide intervention, to improve their knowledge about mental fitness and suicide and to develop valuable life and leadership skills.
