Sessions is an on-demand mental health support platform that provides first responders confidential support anytime, anywhere to work through real issues in live, engaging, video small groups that are facilitated by experienced professionals and supported by a community of peers. Sessions was built by a team of retired chiefs, public safety psychologists, peer supporters, and professionals dedicated to the well-being of public safety and frontline medical workers. Sessions allows First Responders to connect nationwide to other first responders and each session consists of up to 12 other first responders from around the country providing members with anonymity outside of their own department where they can address a broad spectrum of mental, emotional, physical and relational needs. First responders share day-to-day stressors and traumas unique to their profession that few others can relate to. Being part of a community that shares these experiences helps reduce the feeling of being alone. That connection creates confidence, builds hope and strengthens first responders to face life’s inevitable challenges.
