10 Nov Help Us Eradicate Firefighter Suicide
Suicide has been the leading cause of death in firefighters since 2014. More of these brave men and women are losing their lives by their own hand than by any other on-duty incident. On average, 128 firefighters have died by suicide each year between 2014 to 2019, while 84 died due to accidents on the job. This means that more than 56% of firefighters are dying by suicide, as illustrated in the table below.
How We Can Help
It is vitally important for us to focus on helping firefighters be resilient in the face of the debilitating anxiety and depression that can come with the job. Suicide is avoidable when one is equipped with the correct tools to manage stress in a healthier way.
How do we do this? The answer lies in the belief systems deep in the psyche, which directly affect and cause physical function. The most effective treatments address these core issues.
The Pathwaves clinical study of more than 130 participants shows that the Pathwaves NeuroEmpowerment™ Program is highly effective in reducing anxiety and alleviating depression, two main factors which contribute to firefighter suicide. In the study, 94% of the participants had reduced anxiety, with the average reduction being by 64%. And 96% of participants had improved mood (depression – happiness) with the average improvement in mood of 54%.
NeuroEmpowerment™ and Pathwaves Foundation
Pathwaves Foundation is dedicated to providing long-term, sustainable mental health and counseling solutions for those who otherwise would not be able to obtain the treatment they need.
NeuroEmpowerment™ is a treatment which corrects emotional and psychological issues at the same time it corrects physical issues directly associated with psychological function, thus alleviating the root of the problem, rather than treating the symptoms. This is the key for long-term optimal living and quality of life.
