Transition = Change.
Change = Stress.
A common response in the military is to ignore stress - but stress, PTSD, TBI, anxiety, drinking, drugs, and a host of other military-and combat-related stressors don't go away by themselves. Bravo748 Speakers and Entertainers are experienced and continue to address a variety of stressors - in a positive way. They want to help others learn how to set realistic expectations, understand it is healthy to seek professional help, the value of a mentor, make connections, build confidence, turn pressure into a motivator, and acknowledge challenges to manage them effectively.
Traumatic events, emotional injuries, and physical injuries are part of the military experience. Don't ignore them. We can help with resources to support you.
Untreated mental illness can often lead to unwanted consequences, such as suicide. According to a June 2015 CDC report, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death among Americans; more than 1 million people reported making a suicide attempt in the past year; sadly, more than 2 million reported thinking about suicide in the past year; and most people who engage in suicidal behavior never seek mental health services. Twenty-two of our military brothers and sisters takes their lives each day. The toll on family and friends is devastating, unimaginable, confusing, and survivors experience guilt, anger, abandonment, denial, helplessness, and shock.
Connect with us. Suicide is preventable. There is hope. There is help.
Genuine laughter releases endorphins in the brain, chemicals that activate receptors to produce euphoria-producing effects. Research has shown that viewing or participating in comedy led to higher pain tolerance, and there is a dose-related response to laughter: people who laugh more feel less pain later. It was also shown that laughing along with other people is better at relieving pain than laughing alone. Research also finds that emotional and physical pain are not distinct and that social contact can provide relief. Laughter helps develop coping skills, deal with stress and tense situations, and helps us manage pain.

Unsafe working conditions affect service delivery quality and worker productivity and retention. Safety should be viewed as an integral part of human resources management systems – hazardous environments increase absenteeism, turnover, risk of abandoning the profession, short-term sick leave, longer-term disability, and even death. Complacency coupled with a false sense of security can be deadly. Bravo748 Speakers can train in a variery of arenas: safety programs, law enforcement, first responder, top security, crisis management, suicide prevention, situational awareness, and more.
Let's make sure Safety Happens!
