Vanessa Kennedy Police officer is the founder & CEO of Code 1 Wellness. She is an active member of this organization CFRC certified.

They provide FREE counseling to first-responders to deal with everyday stress and I am happy to announce that I just found the cause to donate the 10 per cent of sales of my first book released in November.

From preventative awareness and education to inpatient treatment facilities, Code 1 Wellness was created to protect those who protect others. The vision is simple: to aid in the prevention and treat the causes of mental distress that currently take the lives of our heroes in uniform.

All of our services are 100% confidential. Period. We understand the stigma between first responders and mental health. We’re here to fight that stigma and get people the help they need without the worry.
