Recognizing the Psychological Effects of Firefighting
Why is focusing on fire department mental health so important? Because firefighters, like other frontline workers, can experience damaging psychological effects from trauma they face on the job, as well as from the need to repress fear and stress in moments of danger.
The men and women who serve in fire departments deal with a variety of high-stress situations on a daily basis, including both fires and other medical emergencies. And the effects of constant exposure to these types of experiences can easily take a toll on mental and behavioral health, especially for those who face an outward or internal stigma related to asking for help.
