Much has been communicated regarding the increasing concerns of fire and EMS responder behavioral health. However, we only need to look at the daily lives of people in general to realize mental health challenges and concerns are prevalent in our daily lives, and only compounded when the rigors of emergency service activities are included. In most cases little to no education on the issues, symptoms, causes, treatments, or counseling are ever provided – whether to routine citizen or emergency responder. This makes the challenge of identification, communication and providing assistance even greater.
