WA State DOH PsySTART-Responder – November Training Opportunities

WA State DOH PsySTART-Responder – November Training Opportunities

PsySTART-R is an evidence-based method for healthcare workers, first responders, and healthcare systems to build resilience, anticipate and track stressors, and develop individualized coping plans during critical incidents.

After training, individuals set up their personal PsySTART account, allowing them to track and graph their exposure to certain events that are more predictive of psychological risk, and set up a personal coping plan to address the risks. Only the individual can see and access their triage information.

Additionally, organizational leads can access de-identified, aggregated information on how their staff are doing and their risk levels. This information can be tracked to identify trends in real time, allowing the organization to modify levels of support and offer early intervention as needed. This provides situational awareness and builds resilience within the organization.

The Washington State Department of Health’s Behavioral Health Group is pleased to offer November trainings for PsySTART Responder (PsySTART-R).
