Stuarts Draft Rescue Squad


It is estimated that 30 percent of first responders develop behavioral health conditions including, but not limited to, depression and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as compared with 20 percent in the general population (Abbot et al., 2015). In a study about suicidality, firefighters were reported to have higher attempt and ideation rates than the general population (Stanley et al., 2016). In law enforcement, the estimates suggest between 125 and 300 police officers commit suicide every year (Badge of Life, 2016). – U.S. Department of Health supplemental by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration
In recognition of May being Mental Health Awareness month the Critical Incident Provider Support (CIPS) team will be hosting a movie night for the PTSD911 Documentary on Thursday, May 25th at 6 PM at the Stuarts Draft Rescue Squad. This documentary raises awareness and offers healthy changes that can be implemented within agencies to help their members ask and receive help.
Dinner and CE credit will be provided! This is free and open to the public, all first responders, and their families. I have attached a flyer with the information. Please share this with your providers and your community!

The link to register (solely for a head count) is here. We look forward to seeing you there!

If your agency is interested in hosting this documentary please reach out to me, and we can schedule it.
