*****2019 GRANTS ARE CLOSED****
Firefighter Behavioral Health Alliance (FBHA) is excited to announce on November 6, 2018, the Board of Directors for FBHA unanimously approved a grant request to provide no cost workshops to Fire and EMS departments on behavioral health and suicide prevention/awareness. This year FBHA awarded 12 departments both Saving Those Who Save Others and An Internal Size Up through our grant program.
In 2019, both workshops are being offered again. The twelve workshops are 4 hours each 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 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.
The training must take place in 2019 by November 30, and is dependent on the schedule of the instructor(s) and fire department.
