The mission of Chiron Center, Inc.
is to provide behavioral health education, support, and resources designed to maximize the professional excellence and overall
quality of life of those who place themselves in harm’s way in service of others.
Chiron’s purpose is to be a trusted, respected, and valued resource
for those impacted by trauma and serious loss. Chiron serves as the nation’s first multi-dimensional behavioral
health resource center designed specifically to meet the behavioral health needs of law enforcement, fire suppression, emergency medical, military, social services, chaplaincy, humanitarian
aid personnel, and other first responders.
Chiron’s success means that
every front line responder will be more effective in a crisis and better able to handle the overall impact of an event both
in the moment and after they take off their uniform. Integrating more than traditional best practices training results
in less post traumatic stress, shorter recovery times from major incidents and the saving of hundreds of millions of dollars
a year in costs relating to stress, suicides, depression, absenteeism, and lost productivity.
The value of Chiron includes an additional benefit in the event
of a major national crisis – a terrorist incident or national disaster – Chiron’s best practices will create
a uniform approach to behavioral health crisis management which will complement the training already in place. This
integrated approach will save lives, improve the welfare of our first responders and the citizens they serve.
