Please join us for the first ever New Mexico Public Safety Resiliency Summit.


The last two years have been difficult for people across the country. Physical illness has been a constant issue and mental health related struggles are up 200%. Our first responders have been tasked with providing the safety net that keeps this crisis from completely overwhelming our cities, counties, and states.


  • According to the nonprofit organization Blue HELP, 64 law enforcement officers in the United States have died in 2022 by suicide — this is an average of more than 10 per month. The 64 reported suicides account for 32% of the 197 officer deaths this year, higher than any category of line-of-duty deaths. In 2021, suicide accounted for about 20% of all known police officer deaths.


  • According to a recent national survey 19 percent of firefighters/EMT's have experienced suicidal thoughts, 27 percent have struggled with substance abuse, and 65 percent are haunted by memories of traumatic work situations. More than 80 percent of firefighters said that asking for help would make them seem weak or unfit.


  • It is estimated that 31% of corrections officers will suffer from severe depression and 34% will experience PTSD at some point in their careers. The rate of suicide by correctional staff is also 10 times higher than the officers who are killed in the line of duty.


This training event is intended to to provide an opportunity for healing, growth, and personal development. This is our opportunity to take care of our caretakers. The summit will include four days of training, discussion, and experiential exercises designed to refuel the tank and empty the burdens of our always filling "backpacks."
