CEO Update
Supporting Mental Health for EMS
As most of you are aware, in August we mourned the loss of one of our local EMS responders to suicide. EMS providers often feel the pain of the people they care for. Many suffer in silence. 
A fellow EMS provider had reached out to State Sen. Cathy Young to share his concerns. I would like to thank the Senator for bringing to our attention the need for a stronger emphasis on mental health services and suicide prevention for emergency personnel. STHCS will be hosting Talk Saves Lives on Monday, Nov. 19 from 6-7:30 p.m., and we hope this leads to additional trainings in the future. 
Contact STEMS Coordinator Alicia Broadbent at stems@sthcs.org for more details.
