The First Responder Resilience Project plays a pivotal role in creating mental health access for our dedicated first responders.
Enhancing Mental Health for First Responders
By implementing specialized training programs and support initiatives, the FRRP aims to break down barriers and ensure that first responders have the resources and assistance they need to navigate the unique challenges they face, ultimately contributing to a healthier and more resilient frontline community.
Mental Health Alliance
The Quell Foundation and Lynn University come together to develop and promote The Crisis, Resilience, and First Responder Trauma Training Advisory Council (CRAFT-AC). CRAFT-AC was developed to offer insight and expertise on issues related to the first responder community.
With help from the Lynn University Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC), the CRAFT-AC program will identify needs within the community and arm first responders with a carefully curated curriculum, including comprehensive and easily accessible resources.
The Quell Foundation strives to reduce the number of suicides, overdoses and the incarceration of people living with a mental health illness
First Responder Legacy Scholarship
The Quell Foundation First Responder Legacy Scholarship is awarded to select high school seniors or current undergraduate/graduate students who have experienced the devastating loss of a parent (who served as a first responder- ie law enforcement, fire, EMS, dispatch, corrections) to a line of duty death or suicide.
This award is established to further educate communities on the unique pressures faced by first responders, and their families, as well as to foster an understanding and support of their invaluable contributions.

We strive to normalize the conversation within our first responder’s communities, train them to recognize mental health crisis warning signs amongst their own and create awareness of the direct correlation between sustained occupational exposure to trauma and the alarming rates of suicide within this population of public servants.

Our project includes a comprehensive, 1-year training program that is developed and administered by first responders, for first responders with a goal of reducing the stigma of mental health within this community, while providing accessible resources and self-help tools to combat past, current, and future traumas.
The First Responder Resilience Project is built to start and continue the conversation of mental health within the first responder community.
The First Responder Resilience Project is committed to connecting first responders with essential mental health resources. We work closely with organizations and mental health professionals who specialize in addressing the unique needs of first responders.
Our mission is to ensure that those on the frontlines have easy access to confidential counseling services, peer support networks, and therapy options provided by trusted organizations who understand the challenges these men and women face in their roles.
