People of Service Together
POST helps people of service who are in need of guidance and support to deal with emotional and mental trauma that is unique to them. Through peer meetings, we strive to provide a safe outlet for First Responders and destigmatize the need for mental health outreach.
Support for Stress and Trauma
We are First Responders providing other First Responders with peer support to combat the stress and cumulative trauma unique to the profession.
Who We Serve
We support current, former and retired Peace Officers, Firefighters, Military, Medics, Dispatchers and any First Responder that lives and works to serve others.
Safe, Supportive Peer Meetings
How We Serve
We facilitate group meetings in a secure and confidential environment. Group Leaders are trauma survivors who have benefitted from professional counseling.
Our goal is to provide First Responders with financial assistance in obtaining counseling and treatment resources when needed.
Peer Support for First Responders is an effective treatment option

$300 provides a year of virtual meeting software.
$500 provides one session of Ketamine IV therapy (typically not covered by insurance).
First Responders Mental Health is a Community Issue
A study by Lexipol reveals first responders are short-staffed and stressed, creating significant recruitment and retention challenges, suboptimal levels of resourcing, and increased negative impact on communities. Survey respondents reported not only the occupational hazards and downsides of staffing shortages, but the negative impact on personal health and public safety. Read the study.

The POST team finished 3rd among 50+ teams!
Fight to Win has graciously donated their time and expertise for a Jiu-Jitsu seminar.
This seminar is open to sworn law enforcement officers and first responders from all agencies. No prior Jiu-Jitsu experience is required. The seminar will cover simple and effective defensive tactics techniques both standing and on the ground based on the principles of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. This class will focus on some of the most common scenarios that law enforcement officers may encounter, including defenses to common types of assaults, control techniques, weapon retention, and handcuffing techniques.
