Medic-CE’s Resiliency Training Helps Combat Increasing Mental Health Risks Among EMS Providers

First responders face challenging and often traumatic experiences on a near daily basis as they serve our communities. Over time, these experiences often lead to an increased risk of mental and behavioral health issues. To help, Medic-CE, a leading provider of accredited online continuing education for emergency medical services (EMS) and fire professionals, is pleased to announce the launch of Resiliency training that teaches first responders how to work through the trauma they experience in the field.

“Our new Resiliency training will give first responders tangible skills and techniques they can use to really process and recover from the trauma they are seeing every day,” said Judson Smith, Medic-CE vice president. “With more and more research showing the risks our first responders face, we are excited to offer this new training as a way to help.”

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA), 30 percent of first responders develop behavioral health conditions including depression and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) compared to just 20 percent among the general population. Several studies have also found that suicide rates for first responders are significantly higher than average.

Medic-CE’s new Resiliency training is the result of a collaborative effort by Medic-CE, the Journal of Emergency Medical Services (JEMS), and Dr. Phil Callahan. The course curriculum is focused on five key coping skills that first responders can use in their personal and professional lives to deal with the stressors they experience on a regular basis. The Resiliency training will be offered as part of Medic-CE’s self-paced (F3) continuing education training.
