Paramedic students at LEAD Training in May 2016 

St. Lawrence College Paramedic students participated in Leeds and Grenville, Emergency, Ambulance and Diversion (L.E.A.D.) Training last month. L.E.A.D. Training allowed SLC Paramedic students to gain professional external training so that they may adequately provide optimal care to patients having a mental health crisis.

The Paramedic students in attendance – Kendra Longtin, Justin Shimizu, Genevieve Provost, Jacob Zimmerman, and Darren Templeton – joined 60+ attendees, which included police services, community mental health agencies, paramedics, paramedic students and Brockville General Hospital staff. The training program involved several community partners and special guest speakers, all coming together with the collective desire to work together in offering cohesive and seamless support for individuals suffering with mental illness. Clinical information, tips and approaches, videos, self-care awareness and a riveting personal story were some of the components of the training.
