Island County Sheriff and Swinomish Tribal Police are co-hosting a Health and Well-being training for all 1st Responders on March 20-21.
Island County Sheriff Rick Felici and Chief Lou D’Amelio say they and their entire staff take mental health and general well-being seriously. It’s been a wonderful turn of tides that we are finally talking about our own mental health, learning more techniques and tools to help us so that we can not only survive this career, but thrive. And take these tools into the field with us to help the public.
They are targeting the areas of Clallam, Jefferson, Island, San Juan, Skagit and Whatcom counties.
1st Responder Conferences presents a multi-faceted two-day seminar and networking event for improving the mental health and wellness of our first responders. By discussing the real 21st Century issues that are consistently facing our first responders and their families, our conference will provide awareness, resources and action items to combat PTSD, depression, suicide, addiction, stress, and overall mental health.
