GET CAUGHT UP- First Responders and PTSD

What comes to mind when you see the letters, PTSD?

I'm curious if "first responders" was one of your thoughts. Coming up this week on the show, we are sitting down with our public servants and seeing a day through their eyes. If you are anything like me, up until this taping I had never thought of the trauma our first responders go through. Take a look at what's coming up. 

 Meet Brand Lindmark, who started a foundation after his policer officer brother committed suicide. The Greg Lindmark Foundation offers support to all first responders and also has help pass a law for PTSD training.
