    The role of a Mental Health Resilience Officer;
    the impacts of EMS work on mental health and emotional wellbeing; mental health resilience at the individual, interpersonal, and agency level; communication strategies to engage your colleagues regarding mental health issues;
    case studies in EMS mental health; key elements of an effective agency EMS mental health resilience program; and
    how to build or strengthen an agency mental health resilience program; and resources to support the MHRO.

    This course is designed for EMS practitioners who meet the following qualifications:

    A minimum, current state certification or license as an EMT;
    at least three years of full-time practice (or equivalent) at the EMT level or above, strong interpersonal communication skills with an interest in serving in this position; and prior experience with critical incident stress debriefing (CISD) and/or motivational interviewing is preferred.
