Emergency Responders — law enforcement, fire fighters, EMTs, and Emergency Room workers —face unique job stressors that require counselors who have special expertise and an understanding of those stressors.
We have created a specialized network of counselors for several reasons:
- These counselors understand and have special expertise to help these workers
- Sometimes emergency responders are reluctant to see local counselors because they often work with those same counselors in the line of duty.
- Shift work may make it more difficult to see a counslor face to face.
