What is SECURE?
SECURE (Skills and Experience for Calling Up Resiliency) is a new peer mentorship program for Vermont first responders. Selected applicants will receive education and training to assist their departments in achieving wellness goals, building resiliency, and assisting first responders who may be in crisis. Participating peer mentors will work with licensed clinical health professionals to form a statewide support network that can be used and deployed in the event of a traumatic incident or mental health crisis.
This program is made possible through a collaboration between the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office), the Lamoille County Sheriff’s Office, and
Invest EAP/Centers for Wellbeing.
