The goal of the peer support team is to provide all Rowlett Police and Fire employees (sworn or not) the opportunity to receive emotional support through times of personal or professional crisis. The main goal of our program is to dispel the stigma and to ensure individuals there is no shame in asking for help. Peer support is available to discuss any topic whether it has to do with work or not.
Peer support DOES NOT replace seeing a professional counselor.
The Texas Health and Safety Code Chapter 784 establishes confidentiality between Peer Support members and an employee who receives services from peer support. The communication may not be disclosed in civil, criminal, or administrative proceedings.
