We invite active and retired FDNY firefighters and your families to join us for a free workshop in partnership with The Mental Health Association of New York


Listen, Protect, and Connect is a psychological first aid program that teaches participants to recognize the warning signs for psychological distress and PTSD, especially helpful in a disaster. Just as people learn CPR or first aid to help during medical emergencies, knowing how to provide psychological first aid is an important thing you can do for your family, friends, and neighbors’ well-being.

When & Where: Wednesday, January 21 / 10AM – 1PM at Friends of Firefighters
RSVP: Space is limited – please reply by Monday, January 12 to info@friendsoffirefighters.org or 718-643-0980
