Excellence in public safety requires a workforce with good mental health practices and departments that support mental health as a priority.

The League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust has developed this toolkit to help our members address issues of public safety mental health and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Due to the nature of your job duties, public safety personnel may be at increased risk of developing PTSD. PTSD and other mental health conditions are treatable, and in many cases, preventable.

The Trust has also hired Lora Setter to work with public safety departments, organizations, treatment professionals, policymakers, and others to promote awareness, prevention, research, and treatment of PTSD among first responders. Lora can be reached at lsetter@lmc.org or (612) 248-9551.
