Pre-Registration for the 2018 CISM Symposium will be open in January 2018

APRIL 16, 2018

Please join us at the Inaugural NC CISM Symposium on April 16, 2018. There will be opportunities to network with representatives from current NC CISM Teams. Building this network allows CISM team members to pool resources, share Lessons Learned, and coordinate efforts. In addition, communities interested in building future CISM Teams can learn from current teams and avoid “reinventing the wheel” as they move forward. The purpose of the NC CISM Symposium is to encourage trained, skilled, team members to provide exceptional CISM support and education to individuals, agencies, and departments who have experienced a critical incident as well as long term cumulative on-the-job stress in order to save ca-reers, marriages, and lives.

The mission of the NC CISM Advisory Group is to support the teams which provide CISM services to those agencies and individuals across the state that respond to potentially traumatic events and critical incidents. The goal of CISM and Peer Support services is to better prepare responders to cope with the stressors of their respective professions and to support more timely recovery from the impact of exposure to those acute and chronic stressors.

The purpose of the Advisory Group is to provide recommenda-tions and coordination for the provision of CISM services throughout North Carolina through training, response to critical incidents, and other activities that promote responder and agency resilience.

The Group acts in an advisory capacity to the NC Office of EMS. Members of the Advisory Group include representatives from all identified CISM and Peer Support teams in the state.
