Officers are trained to help others in emotional crisis, but typically not trained—at least enough—to help themselves. That’s a major problem!

What can you as a law enforcement leader and as an agency do about that?

In this FREE Webinar, you’ll get candid, understandable insights into the nuances of first responder emotional & mental health and life-saving guidance on how you and your agency can realistically help officers protect their most valuable asset—their mind.

Board Certified Traumatic Stress Expert Nick Greco, a frequent presenter on first responder emotional health, will teach you about:

  • Practical strategies other agencies nationwide have successfully implemented to enhance & protect their officers’ mental health.
  • The 4 categories of officers every agency has, and which ones are at highest risk for problems.
  • The obvious—and not so obvious—red flags that signal an officer is in trouble…and what to do about that.
  • The emotional health “F” word: How to avoid letting it lure you into false complacency.
  • Step-by-step, real-time guidance for interacting with an officer you know is a suicide risk.
  • 9 events that are at “high clinical risk” for trauma issues and how you can use that knowledge to circumvent emotional crisis.
  • The zones of stress that wear on officers’ minds & emotions and how to reduce their impact.
  • Indirect Traumas: Compassion Fatigue, Moral Injury, Vicarious Traumatization, Secondary Traumatization
  • Addiction to stress: Why some officers suffer from it, why it’s dangerous and what to do about it…and much more!
