Treating PTSD for First Responders Webinar
First responders throughout the nation experience repeated exposure to traumatic events and have been known to suffer from related insomnia, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. They spend their careers helping others, but often are reluctant to ask for help. If left untreated suicidal ideation and behavior can become a critical issue. Even when suicide does not occur, untreated PTSD can lead to poor physical health including hypertension, impaired decision-making, problems in the workplace and needless disability.
In this session, panelists Charlie Camareno – CorVel Corporation | Chief David Picone – San Diego Fire-Rescue | Alan Acre, Psy.D. – Institutes Of Health | and Clark Smith, MD – Institutes Of Health joined together at the Employers’ Fraud Task Force Annual Fraud Fighting Conference in Cerritos, CA to discuss the targeted support and treatment offerings available for patients suffering from PTSD.
