“Voices of Strength,” is a video campaign produced by the 200th MP Command’s Suicide Prevention and Public Affairs Offices. This video is intended to be used with a qualified suicide prevention facilitator. This production incorporates the stories of approximately a dozen U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers, and designed for unit suicide prevention training. The video is approximately 30 minutes in length, and it is divided in three main parts to allow for a break and discussion between each segment.
This video and the other stories in this series offer a revamped look at suicide prevention, using real, unscripted stories of U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers involved with suicide, either through the loss of a loved one, loss of a Soldier, personal attempts or through the perspective of the investigative officers. The goal of these videos is to offer new content for suicide prevention training and discussion during unit training activities to reduce suicide rates across the force.
These U.S. Army Reserve videos are produced by David Dummer, directed by Master Sgt. Michel Sauret, and edited by both in a collaborative effort. All interviews were filmed at the Defense Media Activity studios. For more credits, please see video credits at the end of each film.
