RESILIENCE!!! Mr. James Eddie updates leadership, Logistics Readiness Squadron Chiefs Brad Hoelscher and Jeremy Holt, on tools available to #Copperheads for overall well-being. In the aftermath of the Wing’s resiliency weekend, during September UTA, Mr. Eddie continues to encourage #Copperheads to be there for one another as a formula for our success and perseverance as a Wing. As the Wing’s Director of Psychological Health (DPH), Mr. Eddie offers an array of services such as (but not limited to): psycho-education; counseling; consultation; assessments; collaboration with command on suicide prevention programs. As a 22-year Air Force Veteran turned clinical social worker, who has been in our boots, Mr. Eddie knows all too well the importance of being there for your wingman and never leaving an Airman behind. Never forget to ASK-CARE-ESCORT (ACE). If you feel you may need someone to talk to about the services above, please call (602) 302-9424. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!! #CitizenAirman #BeThere #161ARW #AZNG #AlwaysReadyAlwaysThere
