International Crisis Incident Stress Foundation                                     Go To Site

The ICISF programs continue to provide the most comprehensive model to help people cope with critical incidents. We altered our delivery methods and added numerous resources as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, and many of those services remain as our world continues to recover.

We still firmly believe that peer support and the ICISF programs are best delivered in-person. However, you will find many virtual and remote features as you explore the pages of this website. Remember, the learning process in the world of critical incident stress management is never finished.

The mission of the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation, Inc. is to provide leadership, education, training, consultation, and support services in comprehensive crisis intervention and disaster behavioral health services to the emergency response professions, other organizations, and communities worldwide.

The Suicide Prevention Resource Center (SPRC) is the only federally supported resource center devoted to advancing the implementation of the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention. SPRC is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

First responders, including emergency medical services (EMS) personnel and firefighters, can assist individuals in a suicidal crisis, as well as those who may be affected by a suicide death or attempt. First response agencies also have a role to play in assisting their own staff, who may experience increased risk of suicide as a result of exposure to traumatic emergencies.  Go To Site...

First Responders and Disaster Responders Resource Portal                     Go To Site

First responders face an increased risk of experiencing behavioral health issues including mental illnesses and substance use disorders. Fear of being seen as weak or not up to the job of a first responder keeps many from seeking help. Responders can build their resilience by increasing awareness about risk factors and warning signs, talking with each other, and using healthy coping strategies.(SAMHSA).

The trainings in this installment cover a range of topics, including crisis intervention, Psychological First Aid, preparedness and response, resilience-building, and psychological responses to disasters. The trainings listed are free to the public; however, they may require you to register with a training website in order to take them. Some of the trainings also offer continuing education unit credits.
