Television and movies portray the life of a first responder as fast-paced, high stakes and full of adrenaline rushes as they easily move from life-saving event to another. What the media overlooks is the extreme emotional, physical and mental toll of the job. Emergency responders often deal with this in silence.
Vector Solutions’ new course, Mental Health Awareness for Emergency Responders, addresses the causes, symptoms and coping strategies for the most common mental health disorders for EMS professionals. This comprehensive training was created with veteran first responders to shine a light on the hidden struggles of this profession.
