After the Call; Mental Health Awareness for Families of First Responders by Nick Halmasy, MACP, Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
Mental Health and Awareness for First Responders hopes to begin the conversation around the role and its impact. This book explores the myths of mental health and first responders to implementing strategies to help mitigate the over all impact. The book discusses how to start a conversation with your family members, what to talk about versus not talk about, how to listen effectively, how to engage in self-care, as well as discussing the issue of suicide. The book is written so that it can be read both as a family member or as a first responder.
