Research suggests that 30 percent of first responders will develop behavioral health conditions—that’s greater than the occurrence rates in the general population. In addition, at least one study found that the rate of suicide attempts and ideations is higher in fireman. Finally, it’s been suggested that between 125 and 300 police officers commit suicide every year. This twelve-page 2018 Supplemental Research Bulletin by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service discusses the current literature on mental health issues impacting first responders and offers evidence-based methods to positively impact this very concerning aspect of the public safety profession.
This ten-page article published in 2020 in the journal Psychiatry, Interpersonal and Biological Processes is a fascinating look at what pre-incident interventions are most likely to have a positive impact on post-incident mental health outcomes among public safety personnel. The article offers evidence to support the efficacy of some commonly understood interventions like physical exercise while also pointing out that there is little evidence that other popular practices like mental health training produce significant positive post-incident mental health benefits to public safety employees.
This very short “Surgeon General’s Perspective” from 2019 provides some very interesting information on workers’ health and wellbeing. The article provides basic information on workers’ health, which entities are responsible for protecting the health and safety of workers, and what work-based wellness plans are most effective.
This short article published in Police1 in 2020 provided some discipline specific guidance for dealing with mental health concerns in public safety. Despite its discipline specific perspective, many of the principles discussed are universal in public safety.
This short article in Police1 from late 2020 looks at job-related mental health issues from the perspective of emergency dispatchers. Despite the discipline specific perspective, much of the information can easily be related to all public safety personnel.
