Rescue workers, health care workers, policeman, security officers are committed to serve and protect the peace, security and health. It is gratifying to be able to make a difference. These high risk professions can take a toll on all aspects of one’s life. Under the current COVID circumstances we ask a lot from the rescue workers. It is important to realize that besides the demands of the current COVID period, they have served a long career in a demanding job. The congress will focus on the impact of a high demanding job during their career and give insights and tools for prevention of mental health and wellbeing. This working congress pays attention to science and practice.
