First Responders Trauma Prevention and Recovery
Help for those who help others
Few deal with tragedy and trauma as frequently as first responders. As a result, the incidence of mental illness among emergency personnel is four times the national average in Canada.
The founder and executive director of the Tema Conter Memorial Trust and the Heroes are Human initiative, Vince Savoia, has called the suicide rate among first responders a national crisis. There is a clear need for services and education that will support those who help others.
To ensure SFU's part-time, online First Responders Trauma Prevention and Recovery Certificate is of the highest quality, we will be adjusting the course schedule. A revised timeline of courses will be available in Summer 2017. Please join our email list to receive updates on the program.
