STRONGER 2021

MENTAL - PHYSICAL - FINANCIAL

"It’s time that we start breaking down the barriers and really talking about what it means to be mentally strong."
-Sgt. Glenn Matonak, FOP President
Taking the time to learn about how to process negative emotions so they don’t manifest into bigger problems such as anxiety, depression, addiction and suicide. This event will focus specifically on developing support systems and habits that release harassing and negative emotions. As First Responders we witness the worst possible scenarios, we are trained on how to diffuse and suppress violent situations, to get people to safety. We even have Victim Advocates that work to line up services for after support people who are exposed to trauma. But we are failing to support ourselves. You hear people say “It’s part of the job, we are trained for this and that is all true however there is so much that we need to start doing to make us mentally stronger and to stop leaning on crutches that are damaging.”

You hear people say, "It's just part of the job"
