Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the emergency services
Emergency services staff and volunteers often experience distressing and traumatic incidents, as well as having demanding workload pressures. As a result, they are more at risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) than the general population.
This website from Mind includes information about PTSD which might be useful for you if you work or volunteer in the emergency services, or if you’re a friend or family member of someone who does.
It covers topics such as the common symptoms of PTSD, employer support, and stories from those who have experienced it first-hand.
