What Are These Events All About?

Beginning in March 2020, the Trust is launching a series of free, regional events to provide tools geared towards Corrections Officers in an effort to offset the many impacts of working in the stressful prison environment.

The Trust has pulled together a top-notch group of dynamic trainers. Topics presented during the trainings are based upon cutting edge best practices presented by experts in a variety of fields, while teaching real-time techniques to be used on the job, and at home:

  • Identifying Sources of Stress
  • Tools & Tips for On the Job Wellness
  • Peer-to-Peer Support
  • Addressing Stigma and Barriers to Access
  • Well-Being is Union Business
  • Wellness Resources & Best Practices

You will hear from fellow Custody Staff, health care and legal professionals, prison chaplains, and citizens committed to mental health and wellness in the world of corrections.*

Our goal is simple: we want to create an open, safe, forum to provide each attendee with tangible tools and strategies to aide in their personal health and overall wellness with carefully developed content from experts with practical and clinical experience in this field.
