NAMI North Texas is proud to participate in the NAMI Frontline Wellness Initiative, promoting positive mental wellness for first responders and frontline healthcare workers across the country.
OVERWATCH PEER SUPPORT NETWORK
**LAUNCHING MARCH 18, 2022** The Overwatch Peer Support Network is an inter-agency approach to peer support. The OPS Network boasts a number of trained peer supporters who are members of the first responder and healthcare communities of North Texas. First responders and healthcare workers seeking peer support will now be able to utilize resources not just from their own agency or organization, but from the OPS Network as well. This drastically increases the amount of peer supporters and resources available to them, while also decreasing concerns of confidentiality issues related to talking about their brain health with co-workers.
OPS Peer Supporter Training
Schedule for Upcoming Peer Supporter Trainings January 27-28 February 17-18 February 21-22
For more information, or to register to receive training to become a peer supporter, please contact the Director of OPS, Chris Payne, at email@example.com.
Chris is a former combat medic who served in the U.S. Army and was deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan. He is now an LCSW who has provided his expertise to multiple law enforcement agencies and fire departments across North Texas through direct services, critical incident debriefs, and various mental wellness trainings.
Chris is dedicated to providing hope and help to first responders and frontline healthcare workers in order to promote mental wellness for his brothers and sisters.
