Dennis Cole is the President and founder of the Uniformed Services Peer Council (USPC), a nonprofit agency in Connecticut that provides direct assistance to first responders by networking effective help and ensuring proper access to resources.  Almost four years ago, he survived his second and nearly complete brush with suicidality, alcohol abuse, and the effects of trauma.  During the recovery process, he encountered many areas that were severely lacking in our system of help and several gaps that needed to be addressed.  With the help of friends and others who had similar experiences, the organization was formed.  Networking effective and reputable people to assist and guide others through the process of wellness is paramount to improving another’s success and is a mainstay of his work.  USPC has a focus of “peers helping peers” and assisting each other through the journey and pairing them with professional help.   Their network has grown to over 20 providers who have all been screened to meet the highest criteria for professional effectiveness including specialties in trauma work, professional counseling, addiction and substance abuse, mind-body connection, and through to primary care and sleep
