    First Responders- law enforcement, fire, EMS and emergency communications- perform the vital task of maintaining the safety of our communities. Agencies and community partners have the both the privilege and responsibility of ensuring that the mental and physical wellness of first responders is identified as a priority. Mental Health America of Northern Kentucky and Southwest Ohio has partnered with local first responder agencies for a day of exploring First Responder Wellness.   

    Included in the course will be a panel discussion Making Wellness a Priority in Your Department  that will include Hamilton County agencies that have worked to remove stigma and focus on the wellness and resilience of their departments. At lunch we will host a provider fair of professional and peer support resources who provide specialized services for First Responders. Other topics covered include how the brain reacts to the unique challenges of being a First Responder, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and practicing self-care.

    Lunch will be provided!
