Our Mission

Our Mission

To extinguish Post Traumatic Stress Disorder among first responders.


Our Story

 By First Responders, For First Responders

What started as two firefighters coping with their worsening mental health symptoms evolved into something they wished existed as a resource. Our initiatives are designed to help this silently struggling population be more than just another statistic. Through these initiatives, we are raising awareness, providing an outlet, and investing in evidence-based trauma treatments. 


Statistics surrounding first responders' mental and emotional well-being are understated and underreported but continue to be damning.​ According to a 2020 article published by Dr. Holly Kennedy-Hansen, as well as data from a 2021 study concerning first responder mental health and wellness:​

  • 85% of first responders say they have experienced symptoms related to mental health conditions.

  • 57% fear negative repercussions for seeking treatment.

  • 40% fear being demoted or fired for seeking treatment.

  • 70% of first responders say mental health services are seldom or never utilized.

  • First Responders are 5x more likely to experience depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

  • Police officers and firefighters are more likely to die by suicide than in the line of duty.
