I may return to this form I am currently unsure but I am taking a leave for a mental health reason. To be brief had a really bad patient outcome was a suicide in a child and the whole call has been tearing me up inside. I may return at a later point but for now good bye.

Chris,

Take advantage of your agency's mental health options... some have programs to put you in touch with a professional, and will provide you a few free sessions. calls with bad outcomes for kids are rough; suicide calls take it to another level; it's ok to not be ok.

Many of us have been in the same position as you; I know one provide that never got back on the truck after a particularly bad call, and this was after a 20 year career.

Below are some resources that you should look into; they are first responder focused, so it won't be all new to them


If you are in crisis and need help immediately, please contact SafeCallNow at 206-459-3020

Even if you don't come back here, or to EMS, please take advantage of the help that is out there, don't sit on it, and don't try to deal with it yourself.
Get help, it is free
