Thank you Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation for supporting the training and development of the HEART SMART Program with the Newtown Police Department. HEART 9/11 began training for the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at MGH last October. Nine HEART 9/11 members started working with the Harvard School of Medicine and Benson-Henry Institute to develop a first responder mental health program. HEART 9/11 members are the only non-clinicians to be accepted into this program. Through participation in the HEART SMART Program the individual first responders will gain knowledge to successfully maintain their own resiliency and restore their sense of empowerment through their service to fellow officers.
