This content area module (CAM) for Air Force suicide prevention is a companion volume to the Getting To Outcomes Operations Guide for U.S. Air Force Community Action Teams. It includes guidance, resources, and examples of completed tools for Community Action Teams (CATs) that have an interest in planning, implementing, and evaluating suicide prevention initiatives as part of a Community Action Plan (CAP).
The main volume of the Getting To Outcomes (GTO) Operations Guide provides tools and resources for using GTO to plan, evaluate, and improve any integrated resilience and violence prevention program, policy, practice, or process (P4) that a CAT is interested in including in its CAP. The guide leads CATs through the ten steps of GTO and provides supplemental information and resources to support implementation of integrated resilience and violence prevention P4. Although the guide offers a range of resources and instructions for completing the GTO steps, it does not go into depth about how to apply GTO to any specific substantive area. CAMs, like this one, that accompany the GTO guide provide significantly more depth on specific areas.
This CAM walks the user through a hypothetical scenario with examples of completed GTO tools for suicide prevention. This CAM contains a chapter for each GTO step. Each chapter contains an overview of the GTO step as carried out by the fictional CAT, tips and resources specific to suicide prevention, and examples of completed tools for each GTO step.
