The families of First Responders feel the impact of the stress and trauma that our loved ones deal with on the job. This video contains some of the impact on the whole family.
My husband and I also share a bit of how PTSD has changed our lives forever. Proper mental health training is needed in order to prevent the horror of PTSD from happening to others. We are committed to our work, to first responders and families. We will never give up! There is hope and help. #weareinthistogether #firstresponders #families #heroesandfamiliesunited
