FDNY Foundation Reflects on Mental Health Month and Resources Available for FDNY Members

Mental Health America, the nation’s leading community-based network dedicated to helping all Americans achieve wellness by living mentally healthier lives, marks May as National Mental Health Month.

“This is a good time for us to remember the importance of the mental health of all of our members,” said FDNY Chairman Stephen Ruzow. “They are in high stress situations and risking their lives constantly. It’s important for us to stop and remember their health.”

The FDNY Counseling Services Unit (CSU) has a staff to provide mental health evaluations, direct treatment and appropriate referrals for all employees: Fire, EMS and other civilians.

The CSU provides appointments for individuals, couples, families and phone counseling throughout the week.
