About "Leadership in Mental Wellness/Developing SOPs":
Leaders of first responder organizations have the power to promote polices, practices, training, and an organizational culture that prioritizes the well-being of your members. Leaders that choose to invest in and create comprehensive Behavioral Health Access Programs in their departments see the benefits of employee retention, reduced sick leave, improved working conditions, and better customer service within the community. This training will help you gain insight on the leadership specific considerations for building a BHAP and culture change that is tailored to your department and its members’ needs.
