    72nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

    In this episode of Tinker Talks, we discuss Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, which takes place every September. Last year the Air Force had a resilience tactical pause to focus on rising suicide rates in the Air Force. Capt. Andrea Krunnfusz, the director of Psychological Health for the 72nd Operational Medical Readiness Squadron, joins us to talk about programs and resources available to Airmen in order for them to seek help if needed. She also discusses the importance of coming forward if you’re struggling and how to recognize co-workers who might be struggling with stress and try to get them assistance.
