IFAA: Iverson Foundation for Active Awareness' has made its mission to change the culture within the first responder community. A culture that implies “if you’re not strong enough mentally to take it, you don’t belong”. Currently, the culture has little room for the consistent decompression or the open communication necessary to maintain sound mental health after seeing and experiencing things the human brain can only compartmentalize, cover up, or “add to the bucket” for so long. https://iversonfaa.org/

MY ARENA: The mission of MY ARENA is to help our community of first responders find peace, healing, and strength as they navigate the mental health challenges during their careers. We will teach our community to embrace the power of their story and help them see they are not alone during these battles. This will be achieved by providing training to first responders and their families, giving them tools and resources to stay healthy while serving. Finally, we will educate agencies on how to appropriately handle critical incidents for the employees involved and provide critical response care when needed.
