Steve Fraser, Vancouver Firefighters, and Seia Roots, CMHA Vancouver-Fraser

It’s been recognized that first responder experience distressing and recurring traumatic events in the course of their duties, and psychological injuries and illness can arise from both single or prolonged, repeat exposures. In this workshop, participants will get a preview to a comprehensive, skill building workshop for first responders where they will be provided with the tools used to strengthen psychological health through early identification of injury, peer support, increased mental health literacy and overall awareness. We will also discuss how to recognize and respectfully respond to a member of the public who may show signs of a mental health problem.​
