What are possible responses to trauma and stress?
Potentially traumatic events can affect emergency service professionals in diverse physical, mental, and emotional ways. While some may automatically equate a trauma event to the development of PTSD, this is not always the case. In addition, regular stressors from public safety work can impact mental health and quality of life if not recognized and addressed as you would symptoms from other physical injuries or more obvious traumatic events.
Knowing the “red flags” and then intervening early is a powerful strategy for preventing stress and trauma from escalating into a mental health injury or chronic condition.
