ResponderStrong – Improving mental health supports for emergency responders and their families

Originally founded at the National Mental Health Innovation Center of the University of Colorado Anschutz, ResponderStrong now serves as the mental health initiative of the All Clear Foundation. A collaboration between emergency responders and our advocates (clinicians, educators, researchers, health care organizations, and foundations), ResponderStrong’s mission is to improve mental health supports for emergency responders and our families through joint focuses on intervention and prevention. Our site serves as a resource map for responder-informed crisis and clinical services as well as easily accessible educational content and tools for responders, families, leaders, and the clinicians who work with them.

Behavioral Health Program - IAFF

There is growing concern about behavioral health issues and the significant impact on wellness. The stresses faced by fire fighters, paramedics and EMTs throughout the course of their careers – incidents involving children, violence, inherent dangers of firefighting and other potentially traumatic events – can have a cumulative impact on mental health and well-being.

The IAFF​ continues to develop resources that educate and support members on behavioral health concerns. Check back often for updated information on behavioral health programs and resources.
