Behavioral First Responder Advisory Board
The Behavioral First Responder curriculum was first started to be developed in 2015. Because of the dynamic nature of the mental health field, Alpenglow established an advisory board in 2018. This board meets bi-annually and advises on curriculum, policy, and best practices in the field. To learn more or join our board contact us today!
