Story by Kettering Adventist HealthCare Staff
Kettering Adventist HealthCare launched a new program to help support emergency personnel’s mental health. Offered at Kettering Behavioral Medicine Center, the program is open to helping firefighters, police officers, corrections officers, EMS/EMT, and health care workers.
“Our first responders face struggles and stress every day they put on the uniform,” said Julie Manuel, clinical program manager at Kettering Behavioral Medicine Center. “Our goal is to help these heroes deal with, process and accept the trauma they’ve experienced, as well as help them build some resilience so they can successfully continue their work.”
