Prevention & Resources
Note: With a few exceptions, MHRB does not link to organizations or resources that are located outside of our service area or that do not have a local presence.
Responding to crises can lead to trauma for anyone involved, but none more so than those who are first to get there: police, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, doctors, nurses, just to name a few.
That's why we've developed this list of resources specifically for first responders. These pieces may provide a place to consider first steps to cope with the trauma you've experienced. If and when you need additional help, reach out to the providers in our area.
