Take Steps to Maintain Mental Health

We also want to stress the importance of attending to both the immediate and long-term mental health for all of those impacted. Firefighters and their families and those directly impacted by fires have an increased risk of facing mental health challenges, from anxiety and depression to PTSD. There is help and hope.
