EMS, Fire, and Police frequently experience high levels of stress and anxiety related to work responsibilities. This is also true of front line healthcare workers in both medical and behavioral fields.
The current COVID-19 pandemic has only added to these responsibilities and many of these individuals are now unsure of how to cope or look for signs they may need additional support.
Lynette Hickey, Sam Gehrig, and Tript Bajwah discuss what these added pressures may look like and what can be done to help.
Additionally, Silver Oaks is now providing a weekly virtual support group led by a licensed therapist for first responders and front line healthcare workers. The group provides a network of support and understanding of the difficult situations that often arise in these roles.
