A recent study shows that firefighting is the third most stressful job in America. Another study shows that the number one reason adults did not seek mental health services is they could not afford it. Other reasons included concern about confidentiality, their job finding out, and not knowing where to seek help. Friends of Firefighters has answers to all of these concerns by offering free, confidential services independent of the FDNY. These services cannot be sustained without your help.
Often the simplest way to give is, of course, through financial contributions. Consider additional ways to be involved here.
