ESO Launches Heroes 4 Heroes to Support First Responder Mental Health

ESO Launches Heroes 4 Heroes to Support First Responder Mental Health

Emergency Services Outreach, Inc. is helping to address mental health among first responders by launching Heroes 4 Heroes. Heroes 4 Heroes (H4H) is a peer support program slated to launch in December, 2018. Mental health issues, including PTSD, among first responders is higher than the average citizen given the degree of stress they experience every day they go on duty. As first responders ourselves, it is important that we try to dissolve the stigma associated with talking through our experiences and preventing psychosis. H4H is partnering with behavioral health providers to ensure our peers are supported when wounds are exposed during peer support sessions.

You can help support first responders by donating to the program here.

Contact us for more information and to be notified when we launch and of meeting dates.
