Mindfulness for Firefighters


We are a Nonprofit Organization dedicated to improving the mental health of the community


Firefighters are one of the most essential frontline workers, facing literal raging flames on a daily basis. Given the extreme stress and pressure of their job, many firefighters struggle with mental health and physical injuries on the job. But, like many other courageous jobs, there is often a stigma against mental health treatment that prevents many firefighters from seeking help. Therefore, by implementing a mindfulness-based preventative measure with the YOG Foundation, firefighters can boost their ability to withstand the mental and physical pressures they frequently face and prevent future issues from arising as well.

A Vision for a More Mindful Future

In 2018 alone, fire departments received a total of over 36 million calls for assistance. Besides their duties in fighting fires, firefighters often also provide emergency medical services, disaster assistance, and search and rescue services. Therefore, in nearly every hazardous or dangerous situation that our society faces, firefighters are the ones on the frontlines of these disasters. These stressful situations often lead to mental and physical health issues that can be disastrous for the lives of firefighters. But by implementing a preventative mindfulness program with the YOG Foundation, firefighters can improve both their mental and physical health, potentially decreasing the personal effects of their duties.
