This is part of an ongoing project I am working on about emergency responders dealing with PTSD. Evidence indicates that the prevalence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is substantially higher among first responders than the general population.
On this project, I spent time with firefighter Mark Schofield. Mark's collaboration allowed us to produce a series of images that genuinely illustrated the challenges faced by first responders and the value of The Firefighters Charity's mental and physical rehabilitation services.

The Firefighters Charity is the UK's leading provider of rehabilitation and support services for the fire and rescue community, including serving and retired firefighters, fire service personnel, and their dependents. I worked with firefighters in Gloustershire to produce creative assets for the charity's fundraising campaigns.
