Crisis Helplines

The Old School way of dealing with pain, just "sucking it up" didn't work. It's your turn for help now. 

It's hard to reach out for help...

especially for public-safety dispatchers, who work so hard to take care of everyone else. Traditionally, most 9-1-1 centers have been housed inside local law enforcement agencies. As a result, those 9-1-1 centers have adopted a paramilitary model of operations and dispatchers have embraced an old-school emotional code of "Suck it up!" Sadly, this emotional code has likely contributed to sustained suffering among too many dedicated first-responders.
