When Wellsprings began almost four years ago now, we were searching for ways we could truly help the community of First Responders to find rest and healing. While we have focused on a couple of avenues to complete this mission, we recently learned of a trauma recovery course called Firstline.
Firstline is a course created by First Responders for First Responders and their families. This course focuses on helping First Responders heal from spiritual and moral wounds from trauma. Critical incident trauma directly impacts the mind, body, spirit and soul of a First Responder. The Firstline course is not a support group but instead a network of First Responders who can provide practical insight and help in recovering from trauma. A 12 week course, Firstline is a First Responder led discussion that digs deeper into specific topics related to critical incident trauma. We encourage all First Responders, law enforcement - fire fighter - EMS - dispatch - corrections, to attend this course for yourself or for those in your department who may be struggling.
We are kicking off our first group meeting February 10 and will continue to meet for 12 weeks, every Sunday, from 5-7pm. Our evenings will include dinner and childcare - all free of charge for the First Responder and his/her family. You can register online now at www.firstlineresponders.com. Find our Firstline Course in Waring, Texas and register today.
