About Responder Assist

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.
