Event description
CONNECTING ALL OF THE FRONT-LINE

About this Event

Conscious Connection is an evening to bring together those working the front line, to talk, listen, share, and connect. As members working the front-line and supporters of these members, we have a unique thread that links us all together and there is a powerful strength that happens when we come together and build relationships with one another.

Are you a member of the front-line or a family member/close friend of someone on the front-line ...

~ looking to connect with others?

~ Feeling alone and like nobody understands what you are going through?

~ having trouble navigating through life right now?

~ feeling sad, angry or confused?

"Connection is why we are here. We are hardwired to connect with others, its what gives purpose and meaning to our lives and without it there is suffering." 

~ Brene Brown ~

​What you can expect:

You will hear from a different guest speaker each month who will share their stories and experiences. As well, participants are encouraged to share and connect and build relationships and connections. It is a night with no expectations, just a safe space for us to connect.

GUEST SPEAKER: Mike Skinner

When human beings experience significant trauma, it’s not uncommon for their lives to unravel.

For the past 28 years, Mike has had the privilege of being a Firefighter/Advanced Care Paramedic and has witnessed this unravelling first-hand, many times. However, when he found himself in a position where his life and career were unravelling, none of his experiences prepared him for the journey ahead and how to deal with the problems that would be associated with OSI/PTSI.

Mike’s life has been a myriad of experiences with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Today, he’s humbled to be a husband, a father, a peer and the Provincial Coordinator of OSI-CAN (AB), a community-based peer support initiative of the Canadian Mental Health Association. OSI-CAN is a program that empowers veterans and first responders to be self-determined in finding better mental health through supports that promote recovery, resiliency and growth.

ABOUT F.L.R.P. (Front-Line Resiliency Project)

Through coaching, workshops, speaking and creating true connections we provide all active and retired first responders and their families with the tools, guidance and support needed to improve mental, emotional and physical health by building resilience, reducing stress and creating stronger relationships.

​Gary Benoit (a seasoned 22-year Police Officer, Support Group Lead for the OSI-CAN A.S.K Edmonton and Financial Coach) and his wife, Colette Benoit (B.P.A. Criminal Justice & Certified Life Coach) are the owners of Benoit Wellness Consulting and founders of the Front Line Resiliency Project.
