This training will teach participants how to:

• Understand themselves and others

This course is designed as a proactive approach to suicide prevention. The skills and resources taught may help save the life of a first responder. The course provides cognitive and behavioral tools necessary to sustain a first responder's mental health, build emotional resilience, and reduce the risk of suicide before a crisis point.

Training provides participants with an understanding of the psychology of fear, stress, anxiety, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors that result from critical incidents or traumatic events. Training teaches ways to decrease anxiety, lower the effects of stress, and provide effective behavioral interventions that can mitigate the potential psychological impact that those events can have on first responders.

Built around the concept of a first responder's psychological self-development, the training emphasizes key psychological concepts and explains the links between them. Scenarios are designed to reflect behavioral changes and break down officers' cognitive and emotional processes and are realistic, personal, engaging, thought provoking, and challenging. The first responders examine complex situations involving day- to-day encounters with their coworkers, command staff, and family members.

  • Module #1: Suicide-based knowledge.
  • Module #2: Increase in suicide prevention awareness and attitude.
  • Module #3: Mental health self-assessment and self-intervention.
