(Short) DoD tests VR suicidal prevention training at Scott and Travis AFBs

Leaders from across the 60th Air Mobility Wing at Travis took part in a 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.

Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost, Air Mobility Command commander, awarded a contract to Moth + Flame, which specializes in creating virtual environments and applications. She hired the company to develop suicide prevention training that would allow Airmen and their spouses to interact with and offer assistance to people in distress.
