About Us

We are dedicated to positively contributing to the lives of First Responders, Health Professionals, and their families. We do this by organizing and overseeing conferences, seminars, and events which decrease stigma associated with mental health challenges, by providing education and skill development, peer support and networking opportunities. Revenues surplus of expenses are donated to support First Responders or to hospitals.


Our goals include:

  • Being proactive by breaking barriers to education and care

  • Reducing stigma and raising awareness, by providing a better understanding of mental health and mental illness

  • Lessening the impact of Occupational Stress thereby reducing the rate of mental health injuries

 

Our Methods (Conferences, Seminars and Other Events) are designed to provide opportunities for targeted groups of First Responders and Health Professionals to enhance their personal and professional growth, and recovery by supporting:

  • Education and skill development

  • Resiliency training

  • Research

  • Holistic health services

 

Advocacy:
