First To Respond, Last to Seek Help

Firefighters are the first ones to step up for others in crisis but who is there when the first responders need help? This program is designed to help you understand the effects of the job on firefighters, including the accumulation of traumatic stress injuries, sleep, concentration, judgment, and the negative affect on relationships. Often, first responders develop an unhealthy reliance on alcohol or other substances to cope while experiencing mental health issues like post-traumatic stress injuries (PTSI) and depression. You will learn how to look for the signs and symptoms of PTSI and how to begin and remain resilient throughout your career.
