First responders experience trauma and crisis in their field of work daily. Research indicates that strong family bonds can help reduce the effects of stress and trauma. The realities of your job won’t change, but the quality of your life and relationships can.

Beyond the Call

As the proud wife of a first responder, it is important for families to understand the role they play in the mental health and well being of their spouse or partner. Both parties must endure long work hours and differing schedules, this can mean missing important family events and makes spending time together difficult. First responders build close connections and bonds with other responders, after all, they experience life-saving events together and often process traumatic events with each other. For a spouse, it can feel like coworkers get to experience their significant other when they are at their best. By the time a first responder returns home, they are completely exhausted.
While all relationships have their challenges, there are some simple yet significant things you can do to strengthen your bond and draw closer. It is important to reshape relationship dynamics to your needs and ways to adjust from a "work" atmosphere to a "family" culture.
