Educational Training Materials | PTSD

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a disorder that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event such as a natural disaster, a serious accident, a terrorist act, war/combat, rape, or other violent personal assault. On March 27, 2018, Florida Governor Rick Scott signed Florida Senate Bill 376 that extends Workers’ Compensation indemnity benefits to first responders with work-related PTSD. SB 376 outlines the specific qualifying events, exposures, and diagnosis needed for a compensable workers’ compensation claim. The new law goes into effect October 1, 2018.

An additional provision of the bill is a requirement for employing agencies of first responders to provide educational training related to mental health awareness, prevention, mitigation, and treatment. The materials on this web page outline a framework for employing agencies to build upon to comply with the educational requirement in the new state law.
