This research proposal focuses on mental health issues facing first responders due to their line of work. Topics that are addressed in this paper include the awareness of mental health and different programs that have been created to help first responders deal with work-related stressors and problems. A proposed study seeks to gain more information from first responders to create support resources and programs to ensure that first responders are getting the best quality care for their situations. The goal of this paper is not just to increase access to support resources to help first responders, but also to inform the public of the seriousness of first responder mental health, since they are the emergency personnel that care for all us in the community.
