Supporting good mental health in Firefighters

As firefighters, there are a few simple steps we can do to help build our resistance, resilience and increase our ability to handle the demands placed on us – regardless of the role we play in the fire services.

Video: Serve Strong – Support your crew

Know the signs, back your crew. What a great little video clip to help promote standing by your team and looking out for your mental health. Tag a firie, share this post and let’s treat mental health with just as much importance as we do physical health.

Video: ‘Depression and the Firefighter who fought it’

This video is fantastic – we implore you to take a minute to sit and watch it. Regardless if  you are paid or volunteer, the message remains the same. It talks about lifestyle, warning signs, the fear of asking for help and then progressing through the other side and getting better. 

This video deserves to be shared throughout the services in Australia. Well done.
