An intensive look into suicide and PTSD through the perspective of Law Enforcement and FireFighters. The Consequences of the Badge presentation by Lt. Jay Carson provides an intimate view into an epidemic that our first responders face each day.
Lt. Jay Carson works for Fairfax County Police Department and lives in Fauquier County. He has presented Fauquier with an opportunity to view the presentation and discuss the sometimes uncomfortable and stigma associated topics of PTSD and Suicide in first Responders. Working together with Fauquier County Department of Fire Rescue Peer Support team the groups hope bringing this topic to the forefront will reduce the chance and let first responders know they are not alone in this fight.
Clinicians, Peer Support, and Chaplains will be on site and ready to walk with our Brothers, Sisters, and Families through difficult conversations. Read the story recently written about this presentation here.
