Event description

Description

This symposium is for all first responders and immediate family, police, fire, military/veterans, paramedic's, dispatchers, emergency department workers, and all who work in the volunteer field.

The inaugural First Responder Mental Health Symposium presents a multi-faceted seminar and networking event for improving the mental health and wellness of our first responders. By discussing the real issues that are consistently facing our first responders and their families, our symposium will provide awareness, resources and action items to combat PTSD, depression, suicide, addiction, stress, and overall mental health. The recent Beyond Blue survey results revealed that first responders are at much higher risk of suicide and mental health disorders than any other industry. Little support is provided to first responders, to recognise the signs in ourselves. We aim to change this!

We will proudly introduce a line-up of credible recognised speakers who will address matters that impact the personal and professional lives of first responders and their family members through dynamic and engaging presentations for the entire first responder community. This symposium is unique in that your spouses or significant others who support you are invited to come to learn with you.

With a progressive and forward message of optimism and sustainability, our goal is pushing past traditional silence and bringing first responder wellness to our Australian Heroes.

**This event attracts professional CPD hours for health professionals.
