Peer support is a vital part of successfully battling the mental health crisis that impacts professionals who experience high stress and traumatic situations. In the past, professionals such as law enforcement officers, fire fighters, and emergency medical personnel were discouraged from expressing any sign of experiencing mental health distress after a traumatic situation. However, we now know that by providing a support system of peers that have experienced the same trauma we can help prevent mental health distress from going untreated. By helping professionals who have experienced traumatic incidents, we can decrease the number of mental health driven deaths and situations including suicides and substance abuse. In this bundle, we will start with the history of peer support where we will look at how peer support got started and discuss some of the devastating mental health related statistics. Next, we will talk about creating connections and the importance of building and maintaining healthy connections. After this, we will take a deeper dive into peer support by looking at the three interventions of critical incident stress management: One to One, Defusing, and Debriefing. Then we will walk you through creating a new peer support team by describing the policies of a team and demonstrating a successful peer support team. We will then discuss the importance of the three basic needs of every person: Eat, Sleep, and Fun. The training will get real fun when we dive into meditation and how it can assist in peer support. Finally, we will close out this training with an intense look at one of the most important and catastrophic mental health disorders affecting an increasing number of the population: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. After successfully completing this training, you will be ready to start a brand new peer support team, join an existing support team, or just provide beneficial peer support within your profession and community. Join us in helping to change the experience of professionals across the world.
