June 13-14: BEHAVIORAL HEALTH DISCUSSIONS FOR FIRST RESPONDERS CONFERENCE

BEYOND THE SCENE: BEHAVIORAL HEALTH DISCUSSIONS FOR FIRST RESPONDERS CONFERENCE

Monday and Tuesday, June 13-14, 2022
Island Resort & Casino, Harris, MI

Enjoy two days of engaging content, from nationally recognized and local presenters. Continental breakfast, snack and lunch provided each day.

LET'S START THE CONVERSTATION. The emotional, physical, and psychological stress on the first responder is real and can be brutal. Many of those in the field don't take the opportunity to process their experiences, which can lead to a cumulative impact for the responder and their families. Pride, lack of resources, or concerns about work repercussions can get in the way of talking about traumatic events experienced on the job.

MEET THE EXPERTS. We're bringing together industry experts and individuals who have "been there" to discuss the effects of job-related stress and trauma, how to recognize when you or a colleague might need support, and develop best practices to mitigate the effects of stress and improve your quality of life on and off the job. You'll learn about resources and strategies to ensure not only your personal well-being, but also the ones who call on you for help.
