For First Responders
The first responder community consists of individuals dawning the uniform in service to our local community. Our police officers, fire fighters, EMTs and paramedics push past their own stress, trauma and emotions to ensure our safety and care.
At this time, ODV provides mental health support for our first responders and there families in two distinct ways:
PATH – an ODV program that focuses on peer support and community involvement as form of encouragement of healing and proper integration into society.
Partners – Team ODV continues to build partnerships across the local community with organizations and providers that specialize in trauma experienced by our first responders and their families.
