First Responders are regularly exposed to distressing events and the heightened emotions of the people they serve. Serving on the front line leaves them more vulnerable to compassion fatigue, burnout, anxiety, depression, trauma, harmful substance use, and thoughts of suicide – consequences they cannot leave behind when their shift is done.
This two-day workshop has been designed for First Responders to develop their knowledge and understanding of common mental health challenges. It will equip members with the tools and skills to recognize, manage and cope with those challenging situations.
- Stress, Burnout and Compassion Fatigue
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Conflict de-escalation skills (at work and home)
- Managing stress
- Practical tools and coping skills to maintain
- psychological well-being
