About Bart Leger

My Story

Many people lie awake at night wishing they could get a handle on their stress. Organizations are feeling the negative effects of employee stress and critical incident stress. Lives are being lost needlessly to suicide. No one should have to go through this.

That's why I provide training, coaching, and accountability to help you and your organization regain control and experience emotional peace no matter what life throws at you. Become stress-resistant and resilient.

I have nearly 35 years of experience providing crisis intervention, stress management, peer support, training, and consulting services to first responders, mental health professionals, clergy, school counselors, medical, corporate, and industrial fields. My Ph.D. is in counseling with a concentration in traumatic stress. I am board certified as an expert in traumatic stress and am a retired first responder.

With experience in the business sector, law enforcement, fire services, EMS, schools and churches, I'm uniquely qualified to provide consulting, training and program development in the areas of peer support teams, critical incident stress management, workplace violence, church and workplace safety, suicide intervention, compassion fatigue/burnout, and many other workforce wellness concerns.

Take care of yourself and your co-workers. Every organization deserves to be a safe place. Caring for one another. It's what it's all about.

Listen to what others are saying about the training  and help they've received.

”Dr. Leger used real-life examples and taught on a level we could all understand. I like that this class included a booklet and pocket card to help me remember what to say. This class was presented in a very easy way to understand.“

”The QPR course taught by Dr. Bart Leger gives all who attend the tools to save a life from suicide. Who knows how many lives have already been saved by this invaluable program? No wellness program is complete unless it encompasses not only the health of the body but of the mind as well.“
