Dear EMS1 member, 

For EMS providers, the stress can stack up quickly, with severe consequences: shortened life spans punctuated by heart disease, depression, post-traumatic stress, relationship problems, lack of sleep and suicidal ideation. In the first installment of the EMS Burnout Repair Kit series, presented by EMS1 and Zoll, presenters will tackle the correlation between mental and spiritual health and burnout. 

Register today to join us on November 2 at 1:00 p.m. CT to learn how mental health support programs, from EAPs, to EMS chaplaincy, to peer support teams, can create psychologically healthy workplaces. 

Stay well, 

— Kerri Hatt
Editor-in-Chief, EMS1
