Free Emotional CPR (eCPR) Training Available from Allies of Indiana

Allies of Indiana received a generous Consumer Operated Business Grant from DMHA this fiscal year to offer FREE eCPR training throughout the State. Allies is looking for sites across Indiana to host these free eCPR trainings for their communities. InteCare, in partnership with KEY Consumer Organization founded Allies in 2012 to bring innovative peer-run programs to Indiana. InteCare supports Allies in their efforts to bring eCPR to Indiana and requires their Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) team to be trained in this model.

eCPR is a public health education program designed to teach people to assist others through an emotional crisis by three simple steps:C=Connecting, P=emPowering,and R=Revitalizing.

eCPR was developed by people who have learned from their own experience how to get through an emotional crisis and integrate the experience into a broader understanding themselves and others.Our approach is based on time-tested,basic common-sense principles of deep listening and interacting in a respectful manner.
