Blue Light Programme – Support for Emergency Services
Independent research completed by Mind shows that members of the emergency services are even more at risk of experiencing a mental health problem than the general population, but are less likely to seek support.
Mind is delivering the Blue Light Programme to provide mental health support for emergency services staff and volunteers from ambulance, fire, police and search and rescue services across England and Wales.
Thousands of staff and volunteers across these services have actively challenged mental health stigma, learnt more about mental health and made positive changes in their approach to wellbeing with the support of the Blue Light Programme so far.
