Wingman Plus - Team Kirtland's Helping Agencies

The Wingman Plus Team is comprised of the Kirtland helping agencies.

The agencies work in collaboration to identify community issues and provide leadership with resolutions in the form of programs, activities, and events to enhance quality of life, increase resilience and create a strong base community.

Wingman Plus agencies meet monthly to address issues relevant to the well-being of our base and meet quarterly with the Community Action Board (CAB), comprised of our base leadership, to up-channel issues and resolutions.

We are here to serve Team Kirtland and its family members.

**********************
With the alarming increase in suicide across our force, the Air Force Community Action Team identified five key Suicide Prevention priorities to help get after the goal of reducing suicide risk through safer, healthier, more connected and resilient Airmen and communities. One of AFCAT priorities is centered around Equipping and Empowering Family Members with the knowledge and skills to be key sensors and partners in suicide prevention efforts. AFCAT is sharing this important update on the newly released suicide prevention training for military families that is officially open to *ALL* spouses and family members.

The training is located at https://www.resilience.af.mil/Programs/Equipping-Families/. The link is also available at the landing page of the AF Resilience website by clicking the picture for Family Suicide Prevention Training.
