WMFE is partnering with ProPublica to investigate the impact of post-traumatic stress disorder in first responders. Whether it’s after the Pulse nightclub shooting or responding to a bad accident, first responders across the country are suffering in silence, plagued by nightmares, flashbacks, and seeing danger behind every corner . Some lose their jobs. Some are failed by the worker’s compensation system. Others won’t raise their hand to get help because of stigma.
