Understanding Your Experience

The nature of first responder jobs exposes individuals to high levels of stress and trauma. Over time, the cumulative effect of these experiences can result in a range of mental health challenges, including:

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Flashbacks, nightmares and intense anxiety triggered by past traumatic events.
  • Depression: Persistent sadness, loss of interest, feelings of hopelessness and changes in sleep and appetite.
  • Anxiety Disorders: Excessive worrying, panic attacks and physical symptoms like rapid heartbeat and sweating.
  • Substance Abuse: Attempting to cope with stress through alcohol or substance use, often leading to addiction.
