Mental Health First Aid for Fire/EMS
April 6, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Henry County Public Safety, 1024 Dupont Rd, Martinsville, VA 24112, USA
The training course is presented in an interactive, engaging manner to help those
who are in the profession of helping others. This is a one-day, eight-hour course
that is tailored to individuals that first responders come in contact with in the
course of their duties in the community, but is equally useful as a peer support
tool for one’s colleagues and family members.
What it covers:
• A discussion of first responder culture, stigma and their relevance to the topic of mental health
• Outreach tactics to respond to individuals experiencing a mental health crisis
• A discussion of the specific risk factors faced by many first responders and their families
• A review of common mental health resources for first responders, their families and those who support them
