Peer Support & Emotional First Aid
for the Emergency Services Industry

Being in emergency services is a demanding, challenging, and emotionally-draining career. You are exposed to the most horrific tragedies on a daily basis and are required to remain calm and focused regardless of how the situation affects you – this can sometimes cause unhealthy or absent coping mechanisms that can 'bleed' into their personal life. This training will equip emergency responders or those who work in the industry with the tools needed to provide effective emotional first aid to their peers (peer-to-peer support) and better assist citizens in crisis, which can lead to a healthier career.
