Helping Those Who Keep Us Safe
Updated: Jul 9, 2020
On a daily basis, first responders — police, firefighters, EMTs, corrections officers and military personnel — put their lives on the line to protect others.
Their professional training equips them with the skills they need to save others from danger, but when it comes to seeking help themselves, taking the first step can be challenging.
Unfortunately, the consequences of not seeking help can be dire.
Princeton House Behavioral Health, a unit of Princeton HealthCare System, provides First Responder Treatment Services to meet the unique needs of first responders and help them develop healthy ways to cope with the chronic and acute trauma associated with the critical incidents they handle.
