first Responder Mental Health Services

Services design specifically for Police Offices, Firefighters, EMS and other first responders and veterans who have experienced traumatic events.

Based the US Department of Health reports on a supplement from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration Help for Heroes Program, mental health conditions are more prevalent in first responders when compared to the general population. The report states, “it is estimated that 30 percent of first responders develop behavioral health conditions including, but not limited to, depression and PTSD, as compared with 20% in the general population. In a study about suicidality, firefighters were reported to have higher attempt and ideation rates than the general population. In law enforcement, the estimates suggest between 125 and 300 police officers commit suicide every year.”
