Even though he was lucky regarding his bosses recognition of their mental health needs, there still needs a lot of work to be done.  “There were days when, like you, we would have to watch our colleagues save some lives, and lose others. We saw traumatized parents dealing with the shock of having children involved in catastrophic accidents,” he revealed.
