Post-Traumatic Growth and Resilience
Date & Time
Friday, July 24, 2020, 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
This class is designed to review important mental health issues surrounding firefighters, police, dispatchers and others in high-stress occupations. The presenter will share his story of a critical incident, the subsequent years of questions that were left behind, and his resulting breakthrough that allowed him to grow past his traumatic event. He will then discuss how we can begin changing the culture in these emergency services to address mental health considerations within our own organizations and to reduce the continually escalating suicide rate among our brothers and sisters.
