Our Team is pleased to announce our second annual Emergency Services Behavioral Health Summit. Visit us in Charleston and plan to stay overnight or through the weekend in our beautiful City.

Come join us for an in-depth discussion of emergency services behavioral health programs and resources being provided for our first responders.  Participants in this Summit will include members from each discipline of emergency services; Fire, EMS, Law Enforcement, and 911 Telecommunications, as well as peer team members, clinicians, physicians, EAP program administrators, addiction centers, in-patient and outpatient treatment facilities, chaplains, and other behavioral health providers that make up our network in our communities.

We will have dynamic speakers, representatives of multiple organizations that offer behavioral services for emergency service personnel, vendor displays, exhibits, and great networking opportunities. We will address the strong points of our programs and seek out the weak points of what we do. Collectively, our goal is to leave this Summit with a better understanding of the resources available to us all and to create an improved system of cooperation for all who participate.

For the last decade we have joined our statewide partners to address the mental health needs of our first responders. There are many behavioral health programs being developed across our country and it is time that we come together to share experiences and knowledge to enhance our abilities to help one another. No single organization can provide services to adequately improve the lives of all our emergency services personnel and their families, but we can work together to share resources.  All who share an interest in emergency services behavioral health are invited to attend.

Contact Gerald Mishoe by phone at 843-609-8300 or by email at gerald@firefightersupport.org if you have any questions. Registration will open in early 2019. Come join us for what promises to be a great event!
