As Members are aware, the nature of our industry is one that generates inherent
stress and anxiety which may result in depression or other illness.
It is often not spoken about, but it is common for firefighters to experience these
types of mental health trauma as a result of their service.
Therefore, it is vitally important for all of us to recognise that we are susceptible to
experiencing any one of the above as a result of the nature of our industry.
