How do we manage our own stress from the job and what do we do to recognize unmanaged stress in our coworkers. The Code Green Campaign is focused on helping EMS providers recognize and stop suicide in our own ranks. If that’s what you’re looking for, you found it, right here on this week’s episode of the MedicCast.

Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the MedicCast. I’m your host, Jamie Davis the Podmedic and I’d like to welcome you to this week’s show. In this week’s special show from EMS World Expo 2015 in Las Vegas recorded in the Physio-Control podcast studio we chat with Ann Farina from the project. Joining me in the discussion is Chris Montera, the Geekymedic from the EMS Garage and Sam Bradley from the Disaster Podcast.

code green campaignThe Code Green Campaign takes its name from the color of the mental health awareness ribbon, and from the “code alerts” that EMS uses to designate an emergency patient. For example, if someone is having a stroke or heart attack that needs rapid intervention, we will tell the hospital the patient is having a “code stroke” or “code STEMI”. The idea is that we are calling a code alert on our mental health. The campaign has two main goals. The primary goal is raising awareness of the high rates of mental health issues, substance abuse and suicide among first responders. The secondary goal is providing education for responders on how to provide care for themselves and recognize issues in their peers. Let’s get into that interview and discussion with Ann Farina coming up next here on the MedicCast.
