Combating the Stigma in the Pressurized World of First Responders

Calendar-IconJune 4, 2021

Calling all first responders!  Please join us June 18th!

Specific incidents encountered on the job – or the culmination of many – can leave first responders feeling a variety of emotions, thoughts, and physical sensations. This is normal.  It is also normal to seek help. 

Our goal for this event is to combat the mental health stigma, raise awareness and provide relevant information and resources.  First responders will be sharing some of their experiences, the impact on their personal and professional lives as well as discussing the strategies and supports they found helpful.

Mental health providers and professionals will be presenting information about adaptations first responders may develop that can potentially interfere with daily functioning and relationships. Practical tools, strategies and resources will also be provided.  To attend the in-person event and lunch at RJ Cinema Distillery & Taproom you must register by clicking here.
