This is a morning of stress less tips, inspirational insights and most importantly laughter! with two renowned speakers- Amanda Gore and Greg Van Borssum. It’s FREE because it’s World Mental Health Day. We want to acknowledge that being a first responder means dealing with repeated stressful situations. Exploring lots of different ways to relieve stress is essential to wellbeing . We want to acknowledge the valuable support role first responder family members have- they too face additional stresses as a result of their first responder’s commitment. And we want to acnowledge all those people in our communities who genuinely care about and support the mental health of our first responders. By providing this event for free, we’re “helping the helpers”.
