Building First Responder Resilience Program

Empowering Resilience in First Responders and Their Families

Program Description

The Building First Responder Resilience program is dedicated to supporting first responders and their family members in getting the resources that they need. This may include issues with mental health and substance use. Our approach is compassionate and confidential, offering free support through:

  • Resource Linkage: Connect you to the resources you need to support a healthy lifestyle.
  • Peer Support: Connect with trained first responder peer specialists who understand your experiences.
  • Support Groups: Join our “After the Call” support groups to navigate personal troubles and the unique challenges faced on the frontline. We have one catered specifically for current and former first responders as well as a group catered to family members of first responders.

“It’s time to talk about it. Consider it preventative maintenance to relieve pressure, balance personal life with work, and maintain readiness for duty.”
