Despite a societal shift toward the de-stigmatization of mental health, both our First Responder and Military communities and our general communities at large are still experiencing the devastating effects of suicide and mental illness.
As we seek answers following a tragedy, we’re collectively left struggling to comprehend the actions of our loved ones or respected colleagues. First Responders, Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters, Paramedics, Military Personnel, Corrections Officers, 911 Dispatchers, and a host of other related industries are routinely exposed to both direct and vicarious (experienced through others) trauma. It is during a time of crisis that response workers are at their best, but what happens to the helpers when they are done helping?
In September, Legacy Place Society will be co-hosting the “First Responder & Military Personnel Mental Health & Suicide Awareness Conferences” in conjunction with World Suicide Prevention Day.
Participants in either of these one-day events will be connected with clinical support practitioners, mindfulness strategies, and be present to hear compelling first-hand stories of resiliency as told by those individuals who have lived-experiences.
Join them for a day of wellness and collaboration as they continue to support healthy resiliency strategies both at work and at home.
