GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. This MARADMIN provides guidance for the Marine Corps implementation of Unit Marine Awareness and Prevention Integrated Training (UMAPIT) 2.0, pronounced “you-map-it,” beginning 1 January 2017. UMAPIT 2.0 replaces the current version of UMAPIT and is a knowledge and skills-based, annual prevention training for all Marines per reference (a). Significantly reducing all behavioral health training, UMAPIT 2.0 integrates substance abuse, suicide prevention, family advocacy, and combat and operational stress control (COSC) concepts. UMAPIT 2.0 does not fulfill the policy requirements related to the training of Operational Stress Control and Readiness (OSCAR) team members described in reference (b).
2. UMAPIT 2.0 incorporates evidence-informed practices and raises awareness about common risk factors and warning signs associated with a range of behavioral health issues. The new version is refreshed to keep Marines and attached Sailors engaged and building upon their existing knowledge. UMAPIT 2.0 includes more information on resiliency, coping, self-support skills, decision-making, peer intervention, and intervention via social media. There are 90 minutes of curriculum provided. However, with quality discussion - which increases learning and leadership confidence in frank, kneecap-to-kneecap discussions – UMAPIT 2.0 will likely take 2 total hours. UMAPIT 2.0 should be conducted by a UMAPIT facilitator in groups of no more than 30 personnel.
3. The UMAPIT 2.0 code, upon completion, for entry into the Marine Corps Training Information Management System (MCTIMS) is B9.
4. UMAPIT 2.0 facilitators should be selected for their maturity, excellent communication skills, interest in behavioral health concepts, and must be an E-5 or above. UMAPIT 2.0 facilitators may undergo training by a UMAPIT 2.0 master trainer or Embedded Preventive Behavioral Health Capability (EPBHC) staff member, where available. OSCAR trainers and team members who meet the above suggested requirements would also be ideal as facilitators. HQMC does not mandate UMAPIT 2.0 facilitators be trained via master trainer or train-the-trainer (T3) courses: thorough review of the course materials prior to teaching will suffice. Master trainer courses enhance UMAPIT 2.0 implementation, improve delivery of the training, and increase the beneficial outcomes associated with the learning objectives.
5. UMAPIT 2.0 master trainer courses will be implemented via the Headquarters Marine Corps Behavioral Health Branch staff at I, II, and III MEFs, Marine Forces Reserve, and throughout the National Capitol Region. All installations may receive master trainer or facilitator training by requesting support via the closest EPBHC Director (East Coast-II MEF, West Coast-I MEF). Master trainers will receive the training code BI and facilitators will receive the training code BJ in MCTIMS.
6. UMAPIT 2.0 facilitator guide and media are both necessary to facilitate UMAPIT 2.0 and may be downloaded at https:(slash)(slash)ehqmc.usmc.mil/sites/family/mfc/MAPIT/site pages/home.aspx , and reviewed thoroughly prior to delivering the course.
7. An eHQMC SharePoint account is required to access the training dashboard. To register for an eHQMC SharePoint account, you must be a DoD employee and possess an active common access card (CAC). To register for an eHQMC account, visit https:(slash)(slash)ehqmcsupport.usmc.mil/sites/mcwar/. Select your DoD email certificate, then select "request eHQMC portal account" and follow the steps to submit the account request. Within 24 hours you should receive an email confirmation that your account has been created.
8. Installations or units requiring additional information concerning UMAPIT 2.0, should contact the POC listed in this msg.
