Mental Wellness for EMS Webinar
Recorded August 9, 2023
Scott Moore and Lau Morrison, Psy.D.
Mental health and wellness have been a challenge for many EMS professionals due to the difficult nature of the work our people experience every day. The changing healthcare delivery model, workforce shortages, and the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic have only exacerbated the already difficult day-to-day lives of those working in EMS. While there is a heightened awareness and focus on the mental health, wellness, and resilience aspects of a career in EMS and public safety, there is still a ton of work to do. The AAA’s Human Resources and Operations Consultant, Scott Moore, and Psychologist Dr. Lau Morrison (a former Emergency Medical Technician) will host a program that explores and discusses the mental health strategies, resources, and best practices available to frontline providers and leaders. This program will be a highly interactive discussion seeking to engage the participants to raise awareness and create positive change in the profession.
