2018 FBHA WORKSHOP GRANT INFORMATION
On February 15, 2018, the Board of Directors for Firefighter Behavioral Health Alliance (FBHA) unanimously approved a grant request to provide no cost workshops to fire departments on suicide prevention and awareness. This year FBHA is offering both Saving Those Who Save Others and An Internal Size Up through our grant program. Both workshops are 4 hours that discuss signs/symptoms, communication, addictions, stress, and PTSD. These workshops also include videos, role-play and a presentation of the data collected by FBHA. The scope of the grant is to provide 12 workshops for volunteer, career or combination departments that have budget restrictions that inhibit them from paying for this type of training.
Departments that are awarded a workshop will not incur any fees or expenses, with the exception of refreshments or lunch for the attendees if desired. These are all covered by the FBHA grant.
The training must take place in 2018, and is dependent on the schedule of the instructor(s) and fire department.
