Officers are exposed to traumatic calls for service on a daily basis. Repeated exposure to these stressors can create mental health challenges for these first responders. We have had the great opportunity to speak with police officers about their own mental health.


Firefighters and EMS providers face the risk of mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression, burnout, and post-traumatic stress disorder. We have had great discussions with firefighters about them taking care of their mental health, which is as important as physical health.
