First responders devote their lives to keeping our communities safe — a very important, but at times very difficult, line of work. Over time, exposure to stress, chaos, and traumatic experiences can take a toll on their mental and physical health. These experiences can result in, but are not limited to: difficulty sleeping, anxiety, irritability, and isolation. As helpers, first responders often struggle to ask for help. To aid those who put their lives on the line every day, Mountainside is offering a free safe space for first responders to gather, share experiences, and receive support.
• Speak with a licensed clinician with specialized trauma training
• Connect with others who have been through similar experiences
• Share, without judgment, the impact your work has on your life
Know that you are not alone. Join this opportunity to meet with other first responders and gain the support and knowledge necessary to make meaningful change.
