A new campaign is encouraging Australians to check in on the mental health of our emergency service workers.

‘Are they Triple OK?’ is hoping to increase peer and social support for police and emergency service workers and volunteers, who are often subject to highly stressful working conditions.

Emergency Services Minister David Elliott tells Steve Price it’s important we support our police, firies and ambos.

“You’ve got to be very careful about the stigma associated with mental health as well.

“The last thing we want is the presumption that every single veteran in the state, every single emergency services worker, is going to be suffering from PTSD.

“We’ve got to be very conscious of the fact that we need to empower them to feel that they can come forward and that there are programs to give them assistance.”
