PHOTOS: EMT’s Undergo Mental Health Training At Lakewood Township EMS Headquarters

The NJ EMS Task Force Training Module celebrated the start of EMS Week on Sunday by delivering the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians Mental Health Resilience Officer class for providers representing agencies throughout the state.
The day-long program, held at Lakewood Township EMS, trained attendees to serve as their agency’s MHRO. In that role, these specially trained providers engage with their peers to have a better understanding of mental health issues and resilience, they identify colleagues who are experiencing mental health stressors and crises; they offer navigation to peers in need of services for help; and they support the development of a culture of mental health resilience and wellness.
The class is part of the NJ EMS Task Force’s ongoing commitment to building and supporting the mental health resilience of first responders.
