Lifelines

Lifelines suicide prevention live interactive role play training shows were conducted by Vetwork Learning Solutions three times each week at Fort Hood, Texas from mid 2009 through early 2018. 360,000 Soldiers, Family Members, Department of the Army (DA) Civilians and Retirees participated in Lifelines.

Approximately 200 participants self-identified at Lifelines sessions as having suicidal thoughts, yet none of the 360,000 was subsequently confirmed to have committed suicide.

During the 9-year period of Fort Hood Lifelines training, some 80,000 personnel each year were on post at Fort Hood, so the maximum possible number of people passing through Fort Hood in nine years was 800,000. During that time, of the possible 440,000 personnel who passed through Fort Hood but did not participate in Lifelines, 130 were confirmed to have committed suicide.

Lifelines received some 11,200 feedback comments from participants, almost all of which were positive. Comments included 90 that said, "You have saved my life" (or the life of my family member), and 300 that said, "This is the best Army training I have ever had."

In response to Lifelines amazing effectiveness, in 2015 Army leadership recognized Lifelines as the major factor in reducing Fort Hood suicides by over two-thirds - from 22 per year in 2008 to 7 per year in 2013.

Lifelines was not renewed in 2018 and the jury is still out regarding what impact the cheaper training will have on Army lives lost due to suicide. However, the MICC Fort Hood contracting officer did manage to save over $50,000 per year for three and a half years by awarding the contract to a company that had no past performance or expertise in suicide prevention.

Interactive Role Play

Actors play out difficult scenarios on stage while interacting with a live audience to affect the direction of scenarios and story outcomes. Live performances are written and facilitated to meet your unique training requirements.
