FIRST RESPONDER RESILIENCY
First Responder Resiliency
Department of Children and Families Secretary Shevaun Harris announced the award winners of the $12 million procurement of mental health services for Florida’s first responders and their families. In December of last year, the First Lady announced $12 million in funding to go to implementing or expanding behavioral health services, such as peer-to-peer supports, throughout the state. These services will connect first responders to a provider or fellow first responder who is trained to provide referrals, information, and counseling.
