Our purpose is to provide an organization where first responders can seek and receive professional counseling for themselves and their families. While functioning in a first responder capacity members are exposed to an extreme amount of stress while performing their everyday duties. This often puts a strain on personal lives and relationships.
First responders can receive counseling from our organization in a confidential and individualized capacity. First responders are part of a unique community and require an individual approach to counseling. Our counselors will be trained and qualified to counsel in a way that can maximize understanding and provide the best result.
As a community, First responders are at a higher risk of suicide and divorce. The suicide rate of first responders is close to three times the rate of the general public. The divorce rate is upwards between 65%-80% whereas the general public sits at a divorce rate of around 50%.
It is this organizations goal to try and reduce the suicide and divorce rate of first responders by providing an outlet for them and their families. Also, through workshops and training family members will be able to participate and learn about on the job stresses and connect with family members of other first responders.
