Please note: Link to access webinar will be emailed one day in advance to all attendees that have signed up.

In this webinar, we will present members with a general overview of mental health risks, resources and the importance of managing mental health with wellness programs. We will also talk about how COVID has exacerbated the mental health crisis and discuss what mental health risks often go unaddressed.

Especially valuable for our members in the Fire, EMS, and Health fields, we will discuss the resources available to members such as ResponderStrong, a program with the mission to build better mental health supports for first responders and their families.

ResponderStrong’s novel approach is different from many others in that it is driven by emergency responders from various branches: law enforcement, fire, EMS and dispatch. As our presenter Rhonda Kelly puts it, “the answer is to stop working in isolation – to normalize these issues and equip first responders with the tools they need.”

About the Presenter: Rhonda Kelly is the National Director of Health, Wellness and Resiliency for Global Medical Response and founding Director of ResponderStrong.
