Close to home
Going home after a difficult shift is sometimes the hardest thing for first responders to do. HUGS@Home empowers family members or friends of first responders to provide social support by raising awareness and teaching practical stress management skills.
Training participants in the elements of ‘HUGS‘: Hearing, Understanding, Guiding, and Supporting can help reduce the impact of what their first responders take ‘Home’ and enhance the wellbeing of first responders, and their loved ones.
