WE HELP HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS COPE WITH ANXIETY, BURNOUT, PTSD, AND OTHER DAILY STRESSORS.
According to a recent study published in the Annals of Emergency Medicine (http://bit.ly/annalsofemergencymedicine), emergency departments and healthcare workers have an increased risk of mental health conditions related to COVID-19 Stress Symptoms.
We know healthcare professionals need support from their employers, fellow employees, and the community. Helping them cope and reduce the everyday mental stressors facilitates their better health and effectiveness. Consequently, this supports the entire ecosystem of healthcare.
Those Who Save the Lives of Others Deserve a Sense of Peace & Well-Being
Why is it that some of our most important people, the ones in charge of our community's health and well-being, our healthcare professionals, get neglected when it comes to their health and well-being? They are facing challenging and straining situations daily. They are saving lives, keeping others alive while they are dying inside. At Responders 1st CallTM we know support and resources are lacking for these true Lifesavers.
There is always a "price" paid when working in constant crisis mode. This "price" is paid by our healthcare professionals. Seeing traumatic situations happening hourly to fellow human beings is challenging and straining on the mind and heart.
The "ultimate price" paid is when we lose a healthcare professional due to suicide. The signs of problems are always seen, if you are looking, before the suicide. Behavioral health symptoms surface first- like Post Traumatic Stress Symptoms (PTSS), depression, anxiety, burnout, and other issues.

Why Do We Wait to Help Our Lifesavers?
These Lifesavers Never Wait to Save Others.
Why Do We Make Them Wait for the Critical Help THEY Need?
All our healthcare workers experience a broad range of mental health consequences as a result of work-related exposures to natural or human-caused disasters. (National Library of Medicine https://bit.ly/2PzUx73)
A big risk factor for healthcare professionals is the pace of their work and being on the frontline of trauma, continually facing highly stressful situations. This fast pace leads to an inability to integrate and digest workplace experiences. For instance, 69% of EMS professionals have never had enough time to recover between traumatic events (http://bit.ly/govmentalhealthservices). As a result, depression, stress, Post Traumatic Stress Symptoms (PTSS), suicidal ideation, and a host of other functional and relational conditions have been reported.
No longer should medical professionals wait to receive the help they desperately need. They are given slim to no solutions for their daily stressors. At Responders 1ST CallTM, our goal = No healthcare professional must wait to be and feel better. Our Mission = Save the Lifesavers!
We Are the Solution at Responders 1ST CallTM
One of the biggest obstacles in managing our healthcare professionals' behavioral health problems is the stigma associated with suicidal thoughts and mental health issues. Unfortunately, finding and getting behavioral health support can often be perceived as weak or that the individual is unfit to perform their duties. The mentality is, "suck it up, deal with it, push it down."
This is an upside-down way of thinking. In fact, a totally opposite approach is the only way to manage this impending crisis of mental health issues in healthcare professionals.
Our approach is simple. Make behavioral health solutions available to your healthcare professionals 24/7/365 confidentially and anonymously, on their time availability and when they need it! All services are available through a single phone number - JUST CALL!
We provide the tools needed to manage the high levels of stress and trauma they deal with daily. The problem will not go away, nor will it get solved by allowing these Lifesavers to carry a burden that is too much for any human mind to take on. Responders 1ST CallTM provides in-the-moment consultations and empirically proven behavioral management techniques and solutions. Individuals call in, immediately talk to a master's level clinician specifically trained in dealing with the trauma healthcare professionals encounter, plus they receive follow-up support!
