PTSD | One Firefighter's Personal Survival Story
Updated On: Apr 27, 2021

The cumulative effect of responding to fires, motor vehicle accidents, cardiac arrests and even the mundane routine calls, can have a strong negative psychological impact on a firefighter's own mental health. Evidence shows that rates of depression, anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD,) as well as firefighter suicide have increased significantly in the past few years.

The power of one of your own, especially a well-respected, seasoned veteran of the fire service sharing their own story of PTSD and the ‘spiraling out of control’ that often goes with it, can help someone else overcome the stigma of reaching out for help.

If you need immediate support, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available at 1-800-273-8255, or on their website for chat at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/
