The Sen­ti­nel pro­gram

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NOUVELLES -

The Ba­got­ville cha­plain­cy team has laun­ched a cam­pai­gn to pro­mote the Sen­ti­nel pro­gram and raise awa­re­ness for Base per­son­nel. The pre­mise of this pro­gram is des­cri­bed in an in­ter­view with Major Sté­phane Moi­san, a Ba­got­ville cha­plain cur­rent­ly de­ployed in Ku­wait. Major Moi­san is a spe­cia­list in this peer sup­port pro­gram.

"The Sen­ti­nels pro­gram is a bud­dy sys­tem. The pro­gram pro­vides trai­ning to bet­ter de­tect if a per­son is in dis­tress. It al­so pro­vides lis­te­ning skills, exer­cises and in- for­ma­tion on re­sources avai­lable for those in need "says Padre Moi­san. "The Sen­ti­nel is a pro­gram run by cha­plains, health ser­vices and any other group that would like to par­ti­ci­pate. The Sen­ti­nels be­come the eyes and ears of cha­plains, health ser­vices and other or­ga­ni­za­tions." In­te­res­ted can­di­dates should fol­low the Sen­ti­nel trai­ning pro­gram. Trai­ning lasts about 2.5 hours. To re­gis­ter for this trai­ning, in­di­vi­duals should con­tact their unit cha­plain or the base cha­pel.
