Our faith-based stress and trauma healing journey is designed to address the spiritual and moral toll that critical incidents take on those within the police, fire and paramedic communities. Together, we can see families heal, divorce rates drop, substance abuse decrease and suicide numbers reduced.
The Call We Answer
For many in the law enforcement, firefighter, and EMS communities, the stress doesn’t end when they flip off the siren and leave the scene of an incident. The sights, sounds, and smells of the experience follow them home and, if left unaddressed, begin to chip away at their mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. The situation reaches critical as these responders struggle to find a healthy coping mechanism. The stress at work begins to impact life at home, and the very heroes who respond to the emergencies of others now find themselves in the midst of their own personal emergencies.
Firstline Offers a Proven Path to Healing
At Firstline, our stress and trauma healing course provides a unique blend of clinical insight with Christian faith-based support for first responders and their loved ones. For 13 weeks, members attend weekly meetings and complete brief daily healing activities through
the Firstline mobile app. Childcare and a pre-discussion meal are provided on a weekly basis to
remove barriers of entry for families seeking help. We encourage the participation of spouses and affected family members because we know that trauma impacts the entire family. After completing their healing journey, graduates are invited to participate in our advanced level journey or begin offering help to others by joining their local Firstline volunteer teams.
