It is no secret that suicide is the leading cause of death for police officers. Alcoholism, depression, divorce, etc. frequently plague the profession as well. Stresses faced by first responders, like frequent exposure to life-threatening and potentially traumatic circumstances, only exacerbate the problem. Afterwards, they are expected to go home to their families and instantly switch it off; to transition back to a ‘normal’ person. This session will provide first responders with knowledge of critical incident stress, cumulative stress, and healthy coping mechanisms aimed to help them manage the emotional rollercoasters they ride every day to be able to transition from work to home. Armed with this information, first responders can lead better, more productive lives both as first responders and ‘normal’ people, as well as be prepared to recognize peers who may be suffering in silence.

Discussion topics will include:

  • Mental health challenges faced by first responders: stress, PTSD, and burnout
  • Building resilience and coping with critical incident stress
  • Signs of acute stress reactions and pathways to professional help
  • Importance of mental health awareness and support networks for first responders
  • Strategies for managing trauma and stress in emergency professions
