THE 411 ON FIRST RESPONDER MENTAL HEALTH: THINGS FIRST RESPONDERS SHOULD KNOW
Jeni McCutcheon, Psy.D., M.S.C.P., ABPP
Seeking mental health treatment can seem strange, scary, and worrisome. It is normal to have concerns. Common questions include-
What is therapy?
How private is therapy, really?
Will someone judge me or think I am crazy?
Could seeking therapy threaten my job?
How do I find someone who will get what I do, see and hear on the job?
This 60-minute webinar will provide the low-down on all that you need to know about mental health treatment. A board-certified psychologist with 20-plus years’ experience working with public safety agencies and personnel will share information. Psychotherapy will be explained. You will learn how to find a culturally competent provider. Therapy myths will be debunked. You will learn benefits of mental health treatment. Confidentiality will be clarified. Therapy will be demystified. You will come away from this webinar seeing therapy as a way to cope with problems, and as a means to maintain wellness and resilience, ever so important in dealing with critical incidents and the cumulative stress present in first responder work. There will be time for questions and answers. **AZPOST Approved**
