First responders are one of our most valuable resources. Today, they are facing unprecedented levels of trauma, chaos, isolation, and violence. Now, more than ever, the mental health of our public safety members has to be a priority. First responders across the United States and around the world have been hit with significant stress, violence, and chaos. The current situation has pushed many first responders too far and with as much as they can take.
The time for change is now. This is a book about change. This is a book about caring for hearts and minds and getting it right. This book applies to everyone, from top leadership down to the front line. Agencies and first responders alike need to lean into the concept of mental health for first responders and get serious about their care. Now more than ever.
"Smashing the Stigma and Changing the Culture in Emergency Services," Tania Glenn's latest book, delivers a clear road map to assist everyone who wants to create change and bring about healing for public safety personnel.
