Navigating Wellness

Responding to the needs of our first responders

What is compass?

Providing the mental and physical tools our first responders need,” to verbiage that is a bit more modern, perhaps something similar to the new pull-up banner.

Compass is a holistic program, designed to provide our police and fire personnel with tools they need to process the effects of occupational stress and trauma.

Our innovative program helps improve their ability to deal with high-stress situations and strengthen their overall resiliency.

Dan and I went to a pottery class at the museum tonight as part of the City’s self care program for first responders. I’m really excited to see them fired. I have decided to sign up for weekly classes. It felt good to create something with my hands again. I hadn’t realized how much I missed that until tonight 🙂
