Broadcast Date

Today, we’re not just breaking down doors; we're breaking the stigmas. The sirens fade, all units are returning to quarters, and the streets are safe again - but what happens to those who just calmed the chaos? This episode cuts through the silence that often shadows frontline personnel, diving directly into the unspoken truths of first responder mental health.

Imagine stepping into a therapist’s office, where unspoken tales of adrenaline and pain swirl like a storm. That’s where we're taking you. Dr. Stacy Raymond and Bonnie Rumilly, LCSW-EMT, seasoned veterans on a mission to improve mental wellness, pull back the curtain on therapy, offering an exclusive glimpse into the clinician’s world where rescuers come to be healed.

They tackle the tough questions head-on. Does therapy signify weakness? How does one handle the financial maze of insurance? What about the choice between virtual or face-to-face counseling sessions? And then, there’s EMDR—Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing—a beacon of hope for many, yet a mystery to some. Our hosts demystify these processes, armed with facts and fueled by their years of experience.

This isn’t just another episode; it’s a call to arms—a call to heal. Whether you're taking the leap towards therapy or simply seeking to understand, join us. Witness the transformation, engage in the dialogue, and perhaps, inspire a change. Let’s embark on this vital journey with Stacy and Bonnie. The road to resilience starts here!
