If life is in danger
Beyond Blue 24/7 crisis support
Fortem Australia during business hours
Fortem places high importance on connecting the first responder community to accessible, quality, and relevant information that can promote insight, reflection, and help-seeking. With over 60 years of combined clinical experience, the subject matter experts couple real world knowledge, plain language explanation and first responder-specific clinical application with lived experience that is embedded within Fortem.
The aim of the resources is to empower the first responder community – personnel and family members – with information that is research-informed and that works to highlight and/or normalise the experiences of first responder life and its challenges.
