Welcome! We are a collaboration between emergency responders and the National Mental Health Innovation Center at the University of Colorado Anschutz campus. Our goal is to improve mental health supports for responders and their families through culture change; education and empowerment; and improvement of resources. We focus on EMS, Fire, Law Enforcement (including Corrections), and Dispatch but recognize that our content applies to other groups of emergency responders as well. Suicide is recognized as the leading occupational killer of responders. And we know that untreated stress injuries from the job can significantly decrease responders’ quality of life. We can change this! Together we are stronger. No one should suffer in silence.
Who we are and what we are doing.
