Episode 23- Mental health, The Job, and Yourself

It's becoming a known fact in EMS: Stress is harmful to overall mental health, cumulative, and affects all of us. How do we recognize when things are getting too much for us? How do our workplaces help, (or contribute) to the buildup of harmful stress? Would your agency support YOU with mental health concerns?

Warning: This talk gets real. We discuss our own issues, share some of our darker sides, and talk about some of what we do to cope.

No matter what your thoughts on the subject, or your experience in dealing with stress and job-related mental health, trust us: You're not alone.
