Setting the Standard for Peer Support Programs

The Peer Support Foundation was formed to provide standardized practice and training to public safety professionals in relation to peer support concepts and critical incident stress.  We offer individual assistance to first responders, agency consultation, and training in peer support concepts.  This training is specifically designed for law enforcement, fire fighters, and EMS personnel.  Call today for more information.

Agency Consultation

Critical Incidents can easily overwhelm agencies no matter the size. With our expreinced team members, we offer tailored consultation for agencies on how to best handle critical incidents. This will allow for first responders to heal. Unaddressed and non-validated responses to critical incidents can be detrimental to an agency.
