First responders are highly susceptible to experiencing or witnessing field-specific traumatic events (about 5.9%-22% are diagnosed with psychological trauma). While trauma differs from PTSD, a more long-standing condition, it’s important for first responders experiencing trauma to seek treatment, such as EMDR therapy or trauma therapy, so it doesn’t become a larger issue. The situations first responders generally become involved with are very difficult and stressful to deal with. Every encounter can bring about very difficult decision-making and in with very little time to act. This routine exposure can be traumatizing and requires professional help to deal with effectively. Our Veterans Rehab Treatment Centers utilize the very latest in evidence-based therapy techniques to help those struggling get past these issues.
Anxiety disorders are another common concern among first responders. Due to the high-stress conditions of their career, many medical professionals and first responders experience anxiety. Anxiety is the body’s natural response to stress, but an anxiety disorder can greatly affect someone’s daily activities. The best ways to treat an anxiety disorder are through therapy and medication. When the lives of others are placed in the hands of professionals, those professionals need to be able to act quickly without hesitation and have good judgment. Anxiety can have a devastating impact on that ability which can create major life-threatening complications for everyone involved. Our Veterans Rehab Treatment Center helps develop anxiety coping skills and mindfulness techniques. Nothing is more important than having a healthy head on the shoulders of those who sacrifice so much to keep us safe.
First responders are regularly exposed to traumatic scenes and incidents which can affect their everyday lives.

PTSD can be treated with medications and therapies such as EMDR Therapy and or Trauma Therapy. PTSD is a major issue that many service men and women have to face on a consistent basis.

Depression is a serious issue that can affect first responders in many ways. This can be especially difficult when some of the involved communities don’t promote asking for help when it is needed. Many cases can go on without proper treatment and the outcomes can be devastating. First responders can face symptoms such as extreme fatigue, loss of enthusiasm, and feelings of guilt and hopelessness. All of which can impair their ability to make correct choices in high intensity situations.

Although common, depression is a serious mental health disorder that negatively affects how someone feels, thinks and acts. It can be treated with different therapy practices and medications.

Many people are placed in situations where they must deal with grief and loss. Military and first responders are more prone to experiencing these life situations and it can make their ability to carry out their responsibilities harder than they already are. This is why it is absolutely imperative that professional help be utilized when needed. Untreated feelings of depression, anger, shock, disbelief, anxiety, numbness, and other symptoms can create potentially devastating consequences to impaired thinking when on the job. Coping with Grief can feel overwhelming. We understand that and have a professional team ready and willing to help those who serve and protect. Grief counseling is often times necessary. Whether it’s an overdose or an emergency on a massive scale, first responders bear witness to traumatic events on an almost-daily basis. And while they do their best to save everyone they can, dealing with death is, unfortunately, a common part of the job. Grief can present itself in many ways, including deep sadness or anger, and is best treated with group therapy, counseling, and grief coping skills.
Mental illness is a blanket term for a broad range of conditions which affect behavior, mood, and thinking. This can include anything from clinical depression to schizophrenia. Common mental illnesses among first responders are depression, anxiety, and PTSD, due to work demands and environments. Treatments are available for all of these, although they vary based on disorder and severity. One of the biggest barriers to seeking mental help is the stigma behind needing it. There is a false belief that if an individual needs counseling, they are weak. This simply is not true and can put lives at risk if the individual needing it continues to go untreated. First responders and military veterans have and continue to deal with many hardships. What they did during active duty or in retirement should not follow them around and create chaos in their day-to-day lives. Not seeking treatment can make life difficult and potentially life-threatening. Learn more about what causes mental illness and our Veterans Rehab Specialized Treatment Programs.
