First responders thank you morning tea

St John of God Richmond Hospital is holding a thank you morning tea for first responders on Thursday 27 September 2018.

First responders morning tea

 

There is growing awareness that people working as first responders such as ambulance officers, police officers and firefighters are at a higher risk of acquiring a mental health injury such as posttraumatic stress disorder.

Often these emergency workers only see the negative, traumatic sides of situations so we would like to shine the spotlight on the way they help others and to hear stories about how people in the Hawkesbury region have been helped by an emergency services worker.

Local police, ambulance, fire brigade, SES & RFS organisations are invited  to come along where we will share stories to reinforce the positive impact first responders have on people’s lives.

Details

Date: Thursday 27 September 2018
Time: 10.30am to 11.30am
Venue: St John of God Richmond Hospital, 177 Grose Vale Road, North Richmond
