First Responders

First Responders

Not everyone can talk about the topics and issues that first responders encounter. You know better than anyone — it’s about more than just stress. Emergency responders are at a higher risk for developing mental health issues, and while the reality of the job is often to deal in high risk situations, the trauma and emotional stress of your daily life can negatively impact your mental health.

We at Infinite Mindcare have a strong commitment & passion for working with 1st Responders. We currently offer a multitude of different services specific to the needs of 1st responders such as: critical incident stress management sessions (Individual & Group), team building, in-service training, emergency sessions, family, peer support & supervisor training, and much much more. Infinite Mindcare offers these services through the help of qualified Masters and Doctoral level clinicians who are finely attuned to the culture and lifestyle surrounding first responder professions and their families.

Emergency responders can deal with any number of mental health issues, but here are a some common things to look out for:

Post traumatic stress looks different for everyone, but is a common occurrence for those who have regular exposure to traumatic events.

Specific anxiety symptoms will vary, but many include intense fears, intrusive thoughts, disrupted sleeping, social anxiety, substance abuse, and more.

Ongoing hopelessness, sadness, suicidal thoughts, guilt, and loss are symptoms of depression. Depression can also be worsened or driven by substance use.

Alcohol, Substance Use, & Addictions

Anger Management



Injuries & Disease & Disabilities
