First Aid For Your Brain: PTSD

First Aid For Your Brain: PTSD

Nate Lewis with Alien Gear Holsters invited me onto the podcast! We talk about not only physical care, but some things that has helped us with mental care.

Dealing with the mental trauma after taking care of medical trauma is not something most people think about.

It happens to everyone, and being prepared for the toll it may take on your mental well being isn't talked about often enough.

In this interview with Nate, we discuss our own journeys through the dark valleys our minds went in the aftermath of an emergency, and how we got out.

Can a 5-Year-Old Save a Life?

How to react to an emergency is something that can be taught when still young. I have vivid memories of watching my father, a career firefighter, handle danger with confident and decisive actions.

Basic trauma medicine is something that should be taught in school and EVERYONE should know how to control bleeding at the very least.

Trauma kits should be placed where everyone can get to them and will see them regularly to ensure they aren't forgotten when needed most.

Even a rudimentary understanding of how the human body works is good thing to have. Knowledge and skills are weightless tools and we should try to carry as many as we can.
