Mental health and emergency services

Post by Admin on Mon Apr 23, 2018 1:45 pm

An absolutely harrowing statistic released by the mental heath charity Mind states that approximately 90% of frontline emergency service employees have experienced stress and poor mental health at work. 90%


Emergency services personnel are more likely to experience a mental health problem than the general workforce, but sadly they are less likely to take time of work as a result.
This burn out is affecting their performance at work, inducing a large personal cost, impacting relationships and physical health.

Of course everybody experiences stress and anxiety; but as a serving member of the emergency services and certain military roles, you are exposed to the worst situation day in and day out, things that probably other people wouldn't experience in a lifetime.

Here on The Line we can help eachother. The best thing we can do as an online community is simply listen/read and be there for eachother. I appreciate that sounds a little cliche and quite cheesy. However by just being willing to listen to fellow members will make feel less alone and isolated.

Please post below any relevant advice and or concerns.
