FORT CAMBPELL, Ky. (AP) - Officials at Fort Campbell are trying to bring more attention to suicide-prevention efforts at the post on the Kentucky-Tennessee line.

The Kentucky New Era reports that commanders for the 101st Sustainment Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) met recently to discuss efforts to reach out.

The post already has already incorporated resiliency programs to teach soldiers better ways to cope with stressful situations. Now, it has started implementing a program called Community Health Promotion Councils.

Jojo Huber, the health promotion officer with the Fort Campbell Community Health Promotion Council, says every unit will have a council to discuss how resiliency programs are working and how to incorporate new ideas.
