Behind the Badge
Through BTBNM first responders and their families can access Peer Support Volunteers who are willing to talk and assist when needed.
Our First Responder Peer Intervention Support Team is made up of current and retired first responders. Their main objective is to help those who are dealing with psychological trauma as a result of their work. Our team has vast experience working in fire departments, police departments, EMS, and military. Most of them have personal experience with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), acute stress, depression, or other mental health issues. These peer supporters know how to cope with these conditions and how to take steps to move forward.
