Majority of first responders face mental health challenges
from University of Phoenix
To better understand how first responders are affected by their professions, University of Phoenix commissioned a 2017 survey on first responder mental health, surveying 2,000 U.S. adults who are employed as firefighters, police officers, EMT/paramedics and nurses. The survey not only revealed that a high percentage of first responders are dealing with traumatic events in their line of work, but many are also experiencing negative mental health symptoms.
