Founder

The Center for Firefighter Behavioral Health began its development of technology based resources in 2011. The center is led by faculty and staff at the Technology Applications Center for Healthful Lifestyles within the College of Nursing and the National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center at the Medical University of South Carolina. These resources were created in partnership with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and with funding support from the Department of Homeland Security via the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA). The team is committed to improving the well-being of individuals who have experienced emotional and behavioral problems as a result of major life stressors, including occupational stressors.
