Intention and Impact:

INTENTION: Each agency or department program has a Service Agreement outlining program details. Each of our certified instructors operates with contracts in place outlining clear ground rules, and expectations. This is how we create consistency in our mental health services for first responders and track programs in place across the country.


IMPACT: For each service contract in place with a department or agency, we schedule periodic after-action calls and use evaluations to monitor quality and effectiveness. Instructors use roll call reports after each class to track impact. This is how we protect our reputation and measure our impact across the country.
