Thank you for your vision in creating Touchdown for HOPE – The BEST Super Bowl Party In Town!
All funds received in honor of the Touchdown for HOPE 2020 event
will benefit patient assistance for first responders.
Our first responders are among the first to arrive and provide assistance at the scene of an emergency. These incidents are unfortunately all too frequent. These heroes experience incredible stress, while witnessing tragedies on a nearly unimaginable basis. When first responders encounter traumatic experiences, it often leaves them feeling as if no one else could possibly understand what they are going through besides their peers. They often don’t turn to experts to help them deal with mental health issues.
There is an obvious need to provide mental health services to these brave individuals, however not all of them have access to resources like Employee Assistance Programs and counseling. In a 2016 survey from the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians, 37 percent of respondents (majority paramedics and EMTs) said the agency they worked for did not provide mental health services. Furthermore, 76 percent responded “no” when asked if their employer measured the success of the programs it offered. Similarly, 46 percent were working with a provider agency that did not offer health and wellness services. The effectiveness of already limited resources is substantially undercut by the underutilization of services by first responders, often for fear of employer reprisal or retaliation.
With your support, Lindner Center of HOPE will provide education and financial assistance to our first responders who are always ready to help our friends and neighbors in the toughest of times.
