Over the past few years, increasing attention has come to the alarming rate of suicide among EMS providers. What was once a taboo secret has transformed into a provocative talking point. Join Pat as he explores the role and importance of leadership during some of our darkest hours. Pat’s real-life experiences will give leaders the ability to better understand the behavioral processes in EMS that may lead to depression and suicide. Most importantly, learn how EMS agencies are working to curb suicides and the important role EMS leaders play in the attempt to “revive responders.”
