PeerConnect is a wonder for our Peer Support Team – it provides them with experience and an avenue to give peer support and proactive support to all of our members. Proactive peer support is enabling our Peer Supports to build relationships with members and encouraging peer support interactions.

What will my success look like?

  • Access to exclusive materials from experts in the field of law enforcement wellness
  • Customized to the needs of law enforcement and policing
  • Integration of law resources, information, and materials
  • Supports specific to law enforcement and first responders 
  • Healthier culture reinforced by a sense of trust and support among members
  • More effective communication and engaging dialogue throughout your entire organization
  • Revitalize your officers to become more passionate about serving the community
  • Decrease your absenteeism rate stemming from job-related stress

Supervisors have the best of intentions when it comes to supporting the officers they oversee, but aren’t sure where to begin implementing a workplace wellness program, or if their current efforts are doing the job with such a large and diverse force. 

PeerConnect provides officers on the front-line with a secure place to request contact from a Peer Support worker, and allows wellness coordinators to ensure the needs of their team are managed and cared for.

Mental Health

Roughly 44.5% of first responders screened positively for symptoms consistent with one or more mental disorders, such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.


Suicides outnumber line of duty Deaths


Up to 19% experience PTSD

According to studies cited by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), between seven percent and 19 percent of police officers experience symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, compared to 3.5 percent of the general population.

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.

First Response Mental Health has developed a revolutionary solution to helping improve employee mental health. Any organization with more than a handful of people should consider PeerConnect for improving company culture.

PeerConnect not only helps our school system, but our entire community of family members and support staff. We’re excited to be implementing this product at Matawa.
