GUIDE Founder and CEO, Patrick Sandone, had this to say—

“Today the biggest danger to our Nation’s first responder, military and corrections professionals is the lack of effective and accessible mental and emotional wellness resources.  While agencies spend billions on tools and training to protect men and women from physical harm, the budgets for tools and training for wellness and resilience are still sadly lacking and technology innovation through AI and other means is one way we can deliver great results while still respecting the current tight budgets.”

Shawn is highly committed to GUIDE’s mission to serve millions of first responder, military and corrections professionals to build wellness and resilience faster and stronger and is offering free consultations to any department interested in leveraging AI wellness and resilience tools today.
