Mental Health Awareness: Self Care for First Responders is a user-friendly handbook on the numerous mental health symptoms that affect those in frontline work. It is designed to be thrown in a duty bag and referred to at various stages of one’s career.

This handbook provides valuable background information and practical tips for the self-care of frontline workers, including a concise identification and intervention guide. It also contains a checklist for physical and emotional well being, as well as tips for preventative self-care on topics such as PTSD, chronic stress, and suicide.

Those with careers in policing, corrections, residential work, or other community justice fields are often prepared to take care of others, but with this resource, they will now be prepared to take care of themselves.

  • Also available: A core text with additional information and guidance for first responders, Mental Health Awareness: Practical Skills for First Responders.
  • Ability to build a custom self-care plan and track goals in a special section at the back of the handbook.
  • Easy-to-read checklists and charts.
