Quick Clip: A look at depression after Robin Williams' death
Look for the signs of depression and burnout in your co-workers; when you do, reach out with more than words
By EMS1 Staff
In this week's Inside EMS podcast quick clip, hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson take a look at depression and how it affects those in the EMS field in light of Robin Williams' apparent suicide.
"When we think about depression we put an exclamation point on it and tell people to just get over it, but it's more than that," Chris said. "For people who put themselves in a position to take their own lives, these people are really lost and there's got to be something we can do to help them."
Chris and Kelly recommended those battling with depression to check out the Code Green Campaign. They offer an anonymous safe haven to share your stories. They have a website under development, and they plan to offer educational content, support and referral services in the very near future.
Stay tuned for the full Inside EMS podcast to premiere Friday.
