Helping first responders with symptoms of PTSD

August 24, 2018

It Just Takes One:

One moment, one second, one response can trigger a struggle for which no one was prepared. A struggle dealt with privately for fear of being ridiculed, ostracized, loss of job or promotion, and loss of self. Their work, social and family life can change dramatically. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is an injury/illness. It's our brains reaction to an event our brain perceives as traumatic or horrific....it is not a choice. It can get better, it just takes one person to reach out, one person to speak up, and one person to stand up for that person letting them know that they are understood, valued, cared about and supported.

"We want you to know we are all behind you; we know that we are only one call away from where you are" can mean more to that person than you know.

Be that one person!

For putting their life on the line everyday for all of us lets pay them back by helping them through this struggle and giving them back a good quality of life. They deserve that and more.
