In the eighth episode of ‘Ambulance’, airing this Wednesday (4 November), viewers see the emotional impact on London Ambulance Service staff and volunteers dealing with traumatic situations and how they depend on each other to help handle the difficult things they see and hear on a daily basis.
London Ambulance Service medic Adam, who suffers from depressive episodes and periods of low moods, wants emergency service staff and volunteers not to feel embarrassed to talk openly about their wellbeing and to seek the help if they need it.
Adam said: “Reaching out is the hardest thing to do, but it’s also the most liberating thing to do and I encourage anyone to reach out for help when they need it.
“We’re always the ones that people rely on for help - but we really must make sure we look after ourselves and one another first so we can keep on responding to our patients’ with the greatest care possible.”
