Accessing mental health resources and services for yourself or a family member may be difficult, overwhelming, and time consuming. We offer professional and peer-led behavioral health navigation services with the goal of guiding first responders through and around barriers in the complex mental health system.
When appropriate, we offer direct outpatient counseling services, with both telehealth and in person options for certain geographic locations. Our team of first responder-proficient behavioral health experts use evidence-based approaches to treating concerns common among first responders, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, substance use concerns, and more. These services are free of charge for NW FL first responders and their family members and are not affiliated with any EAP or commercial insurance carrier. To learn more about navigation or make an appointment for outpatient services, call 850-480-9314 or click here. The 2nd Alarm Project line is not a crisis hotline. If you or someone you know is having a mental health emergency, including thoughts of harming themselves or others, please call 9-1-1 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 9-8-8.
