Protecting those who protect us.

Protect the Protectors™, provided through Robertson Research Institute, our non-profit public charity program, strives to improve, manage, and optimize brain health for better first responder emotional, physical, and mental health. We tailor the program to your agency’s needs by simultaneously working with leadership on aggregated data findings and providing each individual with a strategy for long-term intervention. Since the pilot program in 2016, over 50 Partners and over 2,000 First Responders, including Police, Public Safety, Corrections, Fire, and Dispatch have successfully completed the program. See how Protect the Protectors™ can help your team achieve better brain health and improved job performance.

Improving lives through better brain health.

Protect the Protectors™ program is rolled out over 4 phases that run between 9-12 months. We deliver HIPPA-compliant and specialized brain health assessments to participants to determine how each team thinks and relates to stress. We then provide intervention strategies for the team’s unique issues/stressors, and run additional focus groups with leadership and staff based on new data findings. Finally, we provide leadership staff with summary reports and success metrics.
