To ensure you not only serve and protect but also preserve and elevate your well-being in the process.

It is time to amplify comprehensive mental health support for first responders! The reality is that they witness some of the most tragic events that happen in our communities. The stress they experience on the job tends to have a significant impact on their physical and mental well-being. Enduring prolonged and repeated exposure to trauma and extreme stress accumulates over the course of their careers and can lead to struggles with addiction, depression, burnout, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other anxiety related mental health conditions.

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) between seven percent and 19 percent of police officers experience symptoms of PTSD as compared to 3.5 of the general population. Police officers suffer symptoms indicative of PTSD at a similar rate as veterans of the military. Also, according to NAMI, nearly 1 in 4 police officers have had thoughts of suicide at some point in their life and the suicide rate for police officers is four times higher than the rate for firefighters. In the smallest departments, the suicide rate for officers increases to almost four times the national average. Sadly, more officers die by suicide than in the line of duty. Isn’t it time to build more resilient agencies?

The stigma around mental health prevents many first responders from seeking treatment that they may need and deserve. Perceptions that they will be seen as weak in the eyes of their peers and superiors is real. We must normalize the mental health conversation and break the stigma when it comes to our public servants who are risking their lives every day to serve and protect their communities. Let’s prevent them from suffering in silence. The time has come to drive real change and elevate the mental health conversation for our brave first responders so that they are fully empowered to compassionately care for themselves and their communities.
