Description

Conversations Cafe: First Responders - In honor of National First Responders Day

Conversations Cafe is a monthly live podcast recording at Sip of Hope Coffee Bar featuring education and open forum dialogue on the intersections of Mental Health within our communities. This education programming is brought to you by Hope For The Day with support from our partners in prevention, The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention of Illinois and Banyan Treatment Center.

October’s episode will feature interviews with some of Chicago’s First Responders and the intersection of mental health and the important work they do daily to help others. A First Responder is a person with specialized training, who is among the first to arrive and provide assistance at the scene of an emergency and include Paramedics, Emergency Medical Technicians, Police Officers, and Fire Fighters.

In honor of National First Responders Day (the following Monday 10/28), we will be highlighting the stories and perspectives of representatives from the Chicago Police Department, Chicago Fire Department, and Chicago Emergency Medical Services and how their experiences intersect with mental health. Come join the conversation. We are in this together.

Please note, that we are inviting the Sip of Hope community to write HFTD postcards to show our collective gratitude for these everyday heroes in the week leading up to this event. Stop in and take a minute to write a note to show your appreciation for Chicago's First Responders. HFTD will deliver these postcards to First Responders on Monday 10/28 and we will be accepting postcards until 10/26.

*You can listen to past Conversations Cafe podcasts at Anthologies of Hope!*
