Please note that we are currently building up Responder Assist’s capacity. As such, our services are only currently available to emergency workers and veterans from Police Veterans Victoria and SES Victoria.
As we build capacity, we will continue to add more emergency services, including Ambulance Victoria, Country Fire Authority (CFA), ESTA (Emergency Services Telecommunications Authority), Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV), Forest Fire Management Victoria and Victoria Police.
Responder Assist is a government funded service that aims to improve the lives of emergency services workers through tailored mental health supports.
We run a clinical intake and advice service that is open to all Victorian emergency services workers, including those that have retired from service. We also offer training and support to mental health practitioners who treat emergency services personnel. These offerings are underpinned by our research arm which engages in ongoing studies to develop evidence-based mental health interventions that are specific to emergency workers.
Responder Assist’s intake service is Independent and confidential.
Our service is devoted to the mental health of emergency workers with specially trained clinicians with deep experience in treating emergency workers.
Responder Assist’s research pillar is across the latest interventions so that you can feel confident in knowing that you will be receiving the best possible care and evidence-based treatments.Find out more
