Comprehensive Wellness and Consulting Services for First Responders

What We Face

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Prevalence: Studies suggest that up to 20% of first responders, including firefighters, police officers, and paramedics, experience symptoms of PTSD, significantly higher than the general population.

Suicide Rates: The suicide rate among first responders is alarmingly high. According to research, firefighters and police officers are more likely to die by suicide than in the line of duty, with rates estimated to be up to ten times higher than the general population.

Substance Abuse and Addiction: First responders are at a higher risk of developing substance abuse issues due to the stress and trauma they encounter on the job. Studies have indicated that rates of alcohol and substance use disorders are higher among first responders compared to the general population.

Depression and Anxiety: The demanding nature of first responder professions can lead to elevated rates of depression and anxiety. Research has shown that a significant proportion of first responders report experiencing symptoms of these mental health disorders.

Our experienced team understands the unique challenges faced by those in the first response community because we've lived through it ourselves.

"Being a first responder is like carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. Every day, we see things that most people can't even imagine. The stress can be overwhelming, but we do it because we care, and we want to make a difference in people's lives."
