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 military, law enforcement, fire suppression, emergency medical, social services, chaplaincy, humanitarian aid personnel,
and other first responders.
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 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.
