Mental Health for Veterans and First Responders with Lauren Rich
WARNING: This episode contains explicit language and frank discussion of traumatic scenes and events some listeners may find inappropriate. Listener discretion is advised.

It can be difficult to first acknowledge you may need help, and even harder to find someone who you know "gets" what it is that we do on a daily basis.
In this episode, we discuss:
How to make sure the therapist you choose "gets you" Questions to ask and questions they'll (hopefully) ask you Examples of therapy options and what works for folks like us How Lauren came to choose her slogan and why honesty matters
Watch Your Six with Jonathan Parker
We've always talked about how important home life is as a first responder. Coming home safe can't be your only goal and if you solely identify yourself as what you do for a living, it can make home life miserable not just for you but for everyone around you.
This week, we welcome speaker and wellness trainer Jonathan Parker to talk about just this topic. His course can help you through some of the toughest parts of doing what we do. We aren't the only ones dealing with our jobs, we can inadvertently bring grief and trauma home with us and that isn't fair to our families.
In this episode, we discuss:
Common misconceptions about mental health How getting home healthy and happy is more important than simply walking in the door Quick steps you can take today to make your arrival home safer Did Jonathan really do CPR on his wife?!
