We are Retired members of Fire and Rescue NSW who with support from the Health and Safety Branch, volunteer our time to offer support to staff that have transitioned into retirement.
The program also supports family members and individuals experiencing personal difficulties or mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, P.T.S.D., anger, problem gambling and family breakdown.
We are not counsellors but can be someone you can talk to and discuss assessing professional help in your local area such as counsellors, psychologists, psychiatrists and other help providers. Your first call is often your G.P. Statistics tells us that one in five people experience one form or other of mental illness and reaching out for help is essential to good mental health.
