The training is intended to educate members/partners of peer support teams in various crisis related issues. The conference promotes the health and well-being of our emergency responders. It will equip those who provide confidential support and assistance to our peers and their families when they are experiencing emotional, psychological, or spiritual distress due to critical work-related or personal events.
