First Responder Mental Health Conference
Friday, February 23, 2024
Your mental health is important. The mental health of ALL first responders and their families is important. This includes the rookies all the way to the 20+ year veterans. Police officers, firefighters, EMS, dispatchers, and corrections officers experience critical incidents every day. You all are at risk for developing PTSD, stress, and depression. In addition to firsthand trauma, you are also at risk for secondary trauma.
What are your options if you are experiencing symptoms? How does your involvement in critical incidents and traumatic experiences affect your spouse and kids? Would financial stability reduce your stress? As a leader, how do you support your officers, firefighters, EMS personnel and correction officers? We have invited culturally competent speakers (see profiles below) to join us to discuss these important topics.
Backing The Blue - Denton invites you and your spouse/significant other to attend the 5th annual STATUS CHECK - First Responder Mental Health Conference on February 24, 2024 in Denton, Texas. Your registration includes breakfast, lunch and snacks throughout the day.
