1st Responder Conferences

1st Responder Conferences was devised by Deputy Shawn Thomas in 2016 after her peer support captain suggested putting on a conference in Seattle, WA, focusing on mental health and wellness for first responders.  After the well received conference was completed, other departments liked the idea of a health and wellness conference and began requesting them in different locations.  The Seattle conference was a great success and first responders reached out for confidential help. In two years we have organized 11 conferences in several locations including Charlotte, NC. Cocoa Beach, Fl. Pearland, TX. Phoenix, AZ. Cedar Park, TX. Boise, ID and Seattle, WA.

In 2019 we currently have two conferences scheduled and five more we are working on.  

Since inception, several first responders, health care industries, doctors, therapists and first responder organizations throughout the country have become involved in the conferences.  Together it is our goal to make mental health a priority for all first responders and their families by providing education, support and confidential options for them when needed.

Please join us at one of our upcoming conferences.  We know you will be glad you attended.
