World-first SOLAR trials into mental health protection for Fire and Rescue

Two digital tools developed by Australia’s leading mental health researchers could help emergency services workers avoid the debilitating mental health impacts caused by the traumatic nature of their job.

In two world-first trials, Fire and Rescue NSW will trial a suite of Skills fOr Life Adjustment and Resilience (SOLAR) program digital tools. These are in the form of a website and a newly-developed app, to both screen NSW emergency service workers for symptoms of mental health illness and then triage them into an early intervention program.
