Breaking down barriers to mental health support
Firefighters experience stress and trauma on a daily basis, which can result in depression, anxiety and relationship issues. In addition to the stress and trauma experienced on the job, stigma around mental health still prevents many firefighters from reaching out for help.
Optum partnered with MnFIRE to create an emotional wellbeing program built around these unique needs, including a curated network of trauma-aware providers. By helping firefighters and their families get the support they need, we’re making a difference in the moments that matter.
