In the News: Haymarket holds Trauma Retreat for Law Enforcement

First responders such as firefighters, police officers, and EMS providers are understandably at high-risk for mental and emotional trauma due to their line of work. Unfortunately, resources for treating this trauma often go unused by those in need due to a lack of awareness and stigma surrounding trauma. In response, Haymarket held a retreat for law enforcement officers who have experienced trauma.
