Navigating Stress from the Frontline

The Caruth Police Institute is pleased to host our second Supporting the First Responder Family program. This FREE one day program is open to first responders and their spouse, partner, or anyone in their support system.

One team, one fight.  Image in the center of a pair of hands holding fire, rescue, and police badges.

We will focus on how to navigate a wide variety of stressors, from relationship and parenting issues, to chronic injuries, to suicide. Expert mental health facilitators and practicing first responders, joined by their support system, will deliver content that is vital for participants and our communities.

  • Communication Under Stress – Fortifying Your Mental Toolbox
  • Tackling Stress on the Home Front – Panel
  • Out of the Darkness: A First Responder’s Perspective on Suicide
  • We Got Your Six: A Plan of Action (local Chiefs from DFW)

Oct 2018 Program Testimonials

CPI proudly served dozens of agencies from Waco, TX to Oklahoma City, OK and everywhere in between during our October 2018 program. Below are a few of the testimonials.

“Thank you. Everyone needs this. I saw couples and people connect and reconnect all throughout the day. Great idea. Please keep it up. Audience was great from different agencies.”

“The panel discussion was phenomenal. I appreciate the authenticity and vulnerability. I think the whole program should be required.”

“Speakers were so transparent. The topics were awesome.”

“I hope it is offered next year. I will bring my wife so she can benefit from it as well.”

“This is a really needed class and hopefully it expands to reach more officers and officers' families.”
