While the pandemic, civil unrest, and economic upheaval have created unprecedented challenges in our communities, one positive change has been an encouragement to normalize conversations around mental health.

Reducing these stigmas is vitally important — especially in public safety work — because post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) continues to create both financial and human costs to public safety professionals and the communities they serve.

During this session, we’ll discuss how city leaders like you can help, including:

  • Encouraging open dialogue about public safety mental health.
  • Reinforcing accountable and compassionate work environments.
  • Understanding how to support people experiencing mental illness to keep working and return to work.
  • Explaining the benefits of peer support to public safety mental health.
  • Communicating the various options available to assist public safety personnel with mental wellness concerns and recovery.

We encourage you to submit questions to lmcwebinar@lmc.org by Monday, October 19. Please include the title of this session in your email’s subject line.
