WS108. Mental and Behavioral Health Support for the Emergency Response Community Part 1

Emergency management and response personnel are critical to effective crisis management. There is a tremendous amount of work supporting the well-being, psycho-social, and emotional needs of victims and those impacted by disasters. There’s a gap in providing the same level of care to those on the front lines and behind the scenes of emergency management and response.

This three-part, interactive, discussion-based workshop will provide stress first aid and resiliency tips, tactics, and tools that are available as well as, discuss crisis response team development and maintenance.
