PTSD & Mental Illness Beyond the Front Lines – Families and Loved Ones Are Not Immune
Following the tragic loss of her husband Sylvain, a dedicated police officer and family man, to the devastating effects of mental illness in July 2018, Sarah Routhier-Clark channeled her remarkable strength and passion towards helping ensure others could hopefully avoid a similar fate. Sarah has recently written a book that openly shares her emotional story for all and highlights some of the warning signs she wishes she knew as the wife of a first responder before it was too late. This book is titled "Don't Forget Your Roots" and is a powerful and valuable resource that is a must read for all First Responders and their loved ones. Sarahs incredible resiliency and strength shines in this interview as we discuss her highly admirable efforts and contributions she has made towards supporting mental health and PTSD awareness for all first responders since that life changing day in 2018. Please be aware this discussion may serve as an emotional trigger for some.
