If you’re a first responder (such as police, EMT, firefighter, etc.), you regularly work in a high-stress environment to perform life-saving work. This puts you at a higher risk of developing mental and emotional issues, including depression and PTSD, necessitating professional therapy.

Therapists are a critical resource for first responders. Wherever you are located in Georgia from Albany to Warner Robins or even Macon, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Do You Need First Responder Counseling?

First responders often experience traumatic events that can leave a lasting effect on their mental health. Here are some signs that you could use counseling:

  • Recurring memories of a traumatic event, such as a shooting, arrest, fire, or critical incident.
  • Feeling anxious or stressed on a chronic basis.
  • Feeling sad on an ongoing basis without hope.
  • Loss of interest in things that you used to love.
  • Being easily agitated or emotionally reactive.
  • Feeling burned out or apathetic about your job.

If any of the above signs ring true to you, consider getting some help in the form of first responder counseling. For more help to figure out if counseling is right for you, read this article from licensed therapist Dana Carretta-Stein about signs of trauma common to first responders.
