Treating PTSD for First Responders

First responders throughout the nation experience repeated exposure to traumatic events and have been known to suffer from related insomnia, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. They spend their careers helping others, but often are reluctant to ask for help. If left untreated suicidal ideation and behavior can become a critical issue. Even when suicide does not occur, untreated PTSD can lead to poor physical health including hypertension, impaired decision-making, problems in the workplace and needless disability. This conversational style presentation will discuss the targeted support and treatment offerings available for patients suffering from PTSD and other related issues. The goal is to help patients increase career longevity and overall improvement in their quality of life.
