Peer Support Team Development

Peer Support Teams are gaining national attention as a strategy for identifying and intervening on behavioral and psychological concerns in first responders. ACC can help your department develop quality peer support programs by providing training and consultation.


Peer Support Team Clinical Oversight

When following International Critical Incident Stress Foundation (ICISF) guidelines, a peer support team needs a clinical director and mental health oversight. ACC has clinicians with training and experience that allow them to fill these crucial clinical roles on peer support teams.


CISM Services

ACC has clinicians trained in Advanced Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) for individuals and groups. They can provide CISM services on short notice to first responder departments who experience critical incidents. *Travel/accommodations may be needed depending on location.
CISM Training is also available as Teri is an ICISF Approved Instructor for Individual and Group Crisis.

Wellness Checks

A ‘wellness check’ is a 60 minute one-on one session with a culturally competent counselor to discuss job stressors, existing coping skills and to learn additional healthy ways to deal with work related stressors. The wellness check is not a fitness for duty evaluation and is not a form of punishment.  It is not meant to screen for a mental health diagnosis or disorder. The wellness visit offers an opportunity for all employees to learn various skills to decrease the impact of being a first responder.

The wellness visit is usually completed yearly, and the cost is covered by the department.
