The vital role played by paramedics in regional and rural communities is being recognised on International Paramedics Day tomorrow.
Mental Health organisation Everymind is highlighting how important it is to look after our paramedics’ mental health as they frequently deal with long working hours, high stress and traumatic events.
Everymind Program Manager Doctor Sally Fitzpatrick says its vital we support them through the highs and lows of their role, and the organisation are doing their part with an online program.
Doctor Fitzpatrick says the program is necessary because it allows local families to give back and support paramedics with their mental health.
You can access the program on the Everymind website.
