The ONLY proactive Peer Support System on the Market

A proactive peer support model is a cornerstone of promoting mental well-being among first responders. By recognizing the power of anniversary dates and major life transitions, and adhering to guidelines for effective check-ins, peer supporters can play a crucial role in fostering a supportive and resilient community. It’s not just about waiting for distress signals; it’s about actively building connections and offering assistance in both challenging and celebratory times. With PeerConnect’s revolutionary platform proactive peer support means:

  • First responders have check-ins after traumatic calls, allowing for early discussion before issues compound
  • Scheduled proactive check-ins on difficult anniversary dates
  • Normalizing talking with the supports and reducing stigma when reaching out later on

Build Organizational Culture

Members can curate their own support team, and reach out for support to just those users. Members can also request 1–on–1 support directly from a specific support. Remember, all logging of requests are secure and de-identified to preserve the member’s privacy and reduce stigma in the workplace.

Organization Based Content

The app features a newsfeed, services (with map locations), library, events, training modules and FAQs for your organization, a self-assessment area and most importantly: the proactive and reactive Peer Support request and management component.

Real time De-identified Metrics

Use data to make informed decisions on what is best for your organization. Generate reports with tables, charts and graphs outlining the success of your wellness program and potential areas of improvement.

What Leaders are Saying

We’ve been searching for a program that would help us more easily connect our firefighters to their peer support teams, both internally and across our partner agencies. There is nothing we have found that provides the features and value that PeerConnect offers, and we are excited about the possibilities this app has opened for us in offering more support to our membership and communities.

PeerConnect is the only program I have seen that will increase access to care and reduce the time and resources spent coordinating our Peer Support teams.

As a clinical researcher and trainer in the mental health space, I appreciate the importance and sustainability of First Response Mental Health's program. Organizations who use the system and participate in the training will see an increase in helpful interactions and communication among their team members, leading to healthier and more supportive workplaces.
