2014 Northwest Peer Support Conference

[NOTE: Below is information for the 2014 conference.]

About the Conference

The Northwest Peer Support Conference -- hosted by the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office -- is a bi-annual training designed to educate members of public-safety peer-support teams in a variety of crisis-related issues — as well as providing guidance for those interested in starting a peer-support team.

Attendees include public-safety employees, first responders, clergy, and mental-health professionals involved in the emergency-responder community.

Our theme, “Serving Those Who Serve,” reminds us to promote the health and well-being of our emergency responder communities by providing confidential support and assistance to our peers and their families when they are experiencing emotional distress due to critical
work-related or personal events.
