2020 7th Annual Conference Postponed

We are postponing the 7th Annual Helping the Helpers Awareness and Education Day for PTSD for First Responders, allied Frontline Professionals and their families scheduled for October 24th, 2020.

Due to Public Health concerns and restrictions related to the current ongoing Covid-19 Coronavirus, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 7th Annual Helping the Helpers Awareness and Education Day for PTSD for First Responders, allied Frontline Professionals and their families scheduled for October 24th, 2020.

Helping The Helpers - 5th Annual Education & Awareness Day

We recognize this year; 2020, has been extremely difficult for everyone and in particular our First Responders, allied Frontline Professionals and their families. We know that more than ever we could all benefit from this amazing day of education, awareness, connection and fellowship. However, the health and safety of our participants, presenters, colleagues, sponsors and exhibitors is of the utmost importance for us. We also want to be respectful of the work of our First Responders and allied Frontline Professionals: you are on the frontlines providing frontline care while working tirelessly putting yourselves at risk. We ‘Thank You’ and your families for the work you do.

We want to thank our sponsors, partners, First Responders, allied Frontline Professionals, families, colleagues, presenters, participants and exhibitors for your understanding, support and commitment to looking forward to 2021.

We remain committed to ‘Helping the Helpers’. We will be updating our Facebook page and website and will be in touch as soon as we can with new dates and exciting new details for the 2021 conference!

We look forward to seeing you again.

 

Please stay safe.
