PUBLIC SAFETY OFFICERS
AND MILITARY

First Responders you are our real life heroes and you have dedicated your lives to protecting our country our communities and our lives. You come to our rescue every day, as our soldiers, police offices, fire fighters, our EMT’s, paramedics, criminal justice officers, public safety tele-communicators, ER doctors and nurses and recently our Covid-19 doctors, nurses and pulmonary specialists. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do.

As Public Safety Officers and Members of the Military you are constantly exposed to dangerous, stressful and sometimes life threatening experiences. Even during routine shifts, Public Safety Officers and Members of the Military, can experience stress due to the uncertainty in each situation.

In the course of doing your duty these harrowing experiences and repeated job stressors can create new obstacles scarring both the mind and body. As a Public Safety Officer and Member of the Military, you’ve had more than your fair share of traumatic experiences and, as a result, are at greater risk of developing post-traumatic stress than the average person. When you ignore the PTSD symptoms and mask your feelings and move on without addressing them these feelings of fear, anxiety and stress, can turn your life upside down. Over time, this can take a toll on your mental and physical health as well as relationships. Learning how to cope with trauma can help you overcome the symptoms of PTSD and greatly improve the quality of your life.

It is estimated that 30% of Public Safety Officers and Members of the Military develop behavior health issues like hopelessness, anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress as well as suicidal behaviors such as suicidal ideation and attempts.

For some Public Safety Officers and Members of the Military tragedy occurs when the stress and complex emotions you experience from having witnessed the line of duty death of colleagues, the death of children, multiple opiate overdoses, countless covid-19 deaths, the trauma of war and the current environment of mistrust in our communities has become unbearable and for some can lead to suicide. It is imperative that we get you the help and professional support you need and deserve before this happens.
