Tragically, more first responders die by suicide, EVERY YEAR, than are killed in the line of duty. They have life expectancies of 15 years less than civilians, a 70% divorce rate, and a greater chance of dying by stroke, heart attack and cancer than the very people they serve. This is the alarming and unanticipated price of spending a career exposed to more trauma and stress in a shift than most people see in a lifetime.
Until now, care for first responders has been geared primarily around peer counseling, medication and talk therapy: a reactive approach. Although good on one level, this treatment simply does not address the underlying and complex issues all first responders face.

Utilizing their years of service in public safety, with the support of doctors, therapists and researchers combined with the most current data and science, they have created a comprehensive, pro-active, program to deal with the rising crisis in mental wellness in first responders.
