First Responders Support Group
The purpose of this weekly group, is to offer support for First Responders who may struggle with mental and emotional difficulties that are unique to their occupation.
This includes supports for working through high-risk situations and traumatic events, but also may include discussions about dealing with the misuse of drugs and alcohol.
In this group we discuss our common struggles, as we maintain a safe environment. We apply the same professional ethics that First Responders are familiar with in order to create a program that is anonymous and confidential.
Participants in this group are encouraged to outline their current status, and provide a brief self-evaluation of the quality of their life. They are then able to request group feedback, if they need help in dealing with a problem.
If you would like to participate in this group please email firstname.lastname@example.org
or call 604-219-7692.
The First Responders Support Group runs every Wednesday from 3:00PM to 4:30PM at the Together We Can offices located at 2831 Kingsway, Vancouver BC.
