Our classes are for law enforcement, firefighters, EMS personnel, dispatch, and corrections officers. 

 

The accumulation of distressing events can be a heavy burden to carry and can lead to burnout, distracted work performance, illness, and a variety of other negative consequences.  We want responders to know that it is ok to not be ok, and there is help available.  

The courses will introduce those elements that decrease the risk of burnout and extend the longevity of careers, while decreasing the physical symptoms, relational issues, mental overload, and suicidal risk that is too often included in the life of a first responder. It helps members of peer support teams to expand their understanding and hone their skills.  

 

We are hopeful that the classes will provide information to those on the front lines, the people making the decisions, and the educators so they can improve the system, decrease the "suck it up" mentality, and provide the needed support to the responders and their families.
