Having a vetted list of clinical resources enables first responders to find support from resources that understand the first responder culture. Knowing where to turn for yourself, a colleague or a department makes it easy to seek peer support or a clinician. We have taken "Not Knowing" out of the process.
When seeking services from a clinician, we recommend calling a few from our list and talk them over the phone. Ask them questions to see if you can build a therapeutic relationship with them and if they will be a good fit.
