Check out this inspiring episode of Responder Resilience where we dive deep into the power of art therapy with Daniel Sundahl, a paramedic and talented photo artist. Throughout his more than two decades of service as a firefighter and paramedic, Daniel has experienced countless traumatic calls that have taken a toll on his mental health.

Using his unique style of photo art, Daniel processes these incidents and creates powerful portraits that capture the dramatic impact of the trauma. He calls his art "therapy" because it has helped him navigate the emotional and mental challenges of his job. Daniel shares his personal experience with post-traumatic stress and how he has found post-traumatic growth through his art.

Join us as we explore the intersection of art and mental health in the world of first responders. #responderresilience #dansundahl #danielsundahl #danielsundahlimages #dansunphotos #firstresponders #arttherapy #posttraumaticgrowth #mentalhealthawareness
