A Leap Not Taken

MVPSF continues to hear the need from first responders for more mental health support and training. We have brought a dynamic duo, Sergeant Kevin Briggs and Kevin Berthia, a suicide survivor to speak to you. This mental health seminar will tell their story on how they met in March 2005 on the Golden Gate Bridge and how Sgt. Kevin Briggs saved Kevin Berthia’s life. They will discuss everything from: Crisis communication, Suicide prevention and postvention, compassion fatigue and the impact your role as a first responder has on your own mental health. What you do as a first responder can take its toll. Learn ways to identify and address YOUR own needs after your amazing day to day role.
