The following are links to websites specifically for First Responders:
[BC] You Are Not Alone PTSD BC
Provides information about PTSD in BC.
We help those who spend their lives helping you. The men and women of our emergency, public safety, and military services see tragic events every day. They witness human suffering up close and it sometimes becomes very difficult to cope with the aftermath. The aftermath sometimes means that they will suffer with lasting memories that just won't go away. Recalling the smells, remembering the sounds and reliving the witnessed events sometimes haunt these men and women for life. Through research, education, training, and through the provision of peer and psychological support, we aim to help these men and women when they need it most.
