The MassMen Project assists workplace leaders in high-risk organizations (Police, Fire, EMS, fishing, and others) in the development and implementation of peer support programs in their industry. We provide initial consultation services to work together on building a team and delivering training that aligns with the needs of the organization. Peer support is a helpful relationship between people who have lived and shared common experiences, with the ultimate goal of helping those experiencing a range of life challenges find hope and promote resiliency. The training includes an overview of peer support, how to manage reactions, self-care, stress and resiliency, grief, Question, Persuade, Refer, and Psychological First Aid.
100% of attendees in January 2021 reported they’d recommend this training to others interested in becoming a peer supporter
“Thank you so much for providing these two days of invaluable training. Not only is the information we learned relevant to our positions, but these strategies are, simply put, really good reminders about what it means to be human. These procedures and practices can also help us manage our own mental health needs so that we, in turn, can provide stronger support to our members.”
