Behavioral Health Awareness
The goal of the Behavioral Health Awareness course is to educate IAFF members on behavioral health issues encountered in the fire service. The course provides an overview of common behavioral health problems, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Substance Use Disorders, available treatment options, and information on balancing work and life stressors. This course takes about 2 hours to complete. Successful completion of this course is a prerequisite for the IAFF Peer Support Training. IAFF Peer Fitness Trainers (PFT) can acquire 0.3 continuing education credits (CECs) for completing this course. Relevant information will become available upon completion.
