SERVICES FOR EMERGENCY SERVICE PROVIDERS & VETERANS
ACTIVE & RETIRED
Who helps the helpers?
When one struggles, we all struggle. The tough calls, the children that could not be saved, family members whose loved ones we could not console and calls whose outcomes that we never learn the end result. Emergency Services have significantly higher rates of post-traumatic stress, work-related illness, mental illness, and physical illness as a result of the stress related to the workplace. As an unfortunate side effect of the unique work that First Responders experience successful treatment is sometimes difficult. First responders often report that traditional approaches to therapy do not resonate with the type of work they do. This is for a variety of reasons. Our consultants have over 25+ years of combined experience in law enforcement, fire, and EMS as well as advanced training in working with Veterans.
