We have a very special guest on the pod today, Rhonda Kelly, a dear friend to NMHIC and the Executive Director of the All Clear Foundation and ResponderStrong.

Here is a preview of what Matt, Sarah, and Rhonda discuss.

  • How responders main experience is to the trauma and suffering of other people and how many people in our communities fall into this category
  • Effective tools for responders to utilize for their mental health and healing
  • The importance of work-life balance is in order to relieve strain on emergency responders in the field
  • How Rhonda sent Matt to the emergency room
