Managing stress and anxiety (Fire service)

Organisation: Mind


Working in the fire and rescue service is a job where you may often feel like you are under a lot of pressure, and it’s natural to feel stressed or anxious. But if you become regularly overwhelmed by these feelings, this could start to seriously affect your health.

Mind have created this PDF booklet to explore some of the causes of stress and anxiety for the fire and rescue service, and have brought together some tips to help you cope better at work. It includes advice on how to know when you might be having a panic attack, the top symptoms of stress you might be feeling, and advice on how to reach out for support.

It’s ideal for anyone working in the fire and rescue service, regardless of your role.

Mind have also created PDF guides for other emergency responders. Click here to see all of the resources in one place.
