Long hours, rotating shift work, and constant exposure to chronic stress impact the lives of first responders like no other profession. This presentation will feature a panel discussion led by Michael Bizzarro, PhD, LCSW, BCD, Director of First Responder Treatment Services at Princeton House Behavioral Health, focusing on the impact these pressures can have on a first responder’s family, including issues like marital discord, domestic violence, financial problems and substance abuse. Panel members will include representatives from law enforcement, corrections, firefighters, military and EMT professions.
