ASIST: A Turning Point in Mental Health Awareness

Karan Godette, 20th Fighter Wing Integrated Resilience Office (IRO) prevention specialist, poses for a portrait at Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., Nov. 21, 2023. Godette was recently certified as one of the two new Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) instructors so more training courses can be conducted for Shaw AFB personnel. As part of the Department of Defense’s initiative to increase mental health awareness and access to mental health care, the IRO is conducting bimonthly ASIST courses in 2024.
