Manage episode 300209177 series 2411866
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?!
