Are you a First Responder? We need you!

You may remember reading about Dr Amy Baker from the University of South Australia who is conducting research aiming to eliminate help seeking barriers for emergency service personnel and provide them with the support they need.

Dr Baker and her research team would like to learn about your experiences of seeking help for mental health concerns after being exposed to a traumatic situation as a first responder. This research will increase understanding of barriers and enablers experienced by first responders to help seeking for mental health concerns.

Who is being invited to participate in the study?

Those employed for at least one year as a first responder by an emergency service organisation in South Australia (who are over 18 years of age) and who have faced a traumatic situation while engaging in their day-to-day work.

What’s involved?

You will be asked to participate in an audio recorded one-to-one interview which will last for up to 90 minutes. This interview will be completely confidential. For more information and to participate, please contact Ms Heather Eaton.
