First Responder Outpatient
for Mental Health
Command Post Wellness offers specialized outpatient care for first responders in Orange County struggling with work-related mental health issues.
Why We Care
First responders are critical in saving lives and alleviating injuries during emergencies. However, repeated exposure to stress and trauma puts these heroes at higher risk for mental health disorders such as anxiety and PTSI (post-traumatic stress injury).
Recent studies reveal 30% of first responders develop mental health conditions, including PTSI, compared with 20% in the general population. Unfortunately, the stigma associated with mental health conditions often prevents these heroes from seeking appropriate care. Our programs are designed to treat the various conditions that impact first responders.
Our Outpatient Mental Health Treatment
We offer outpatient mental health treatment, where first responders can access care while commuting from home. In our outpatient treatment, we ditch the hospital so that first responders with mental health disorders receive health services in an office or clinical setting.
Benefits of First Responder Mental Health Treatment
Mental health treatment is designed to help first responders tackle the various mental disorders related to their job. The treatment involves various therapy sessions that allow patients to learn more about themselves and gain new coping skills. Therapies also include learning about their conditions and how to identify their symptoms.
The following are some of the benefits of mental health treatment:

First responders are typically the first people at the scene of dangerous or troubling incidents. Over time, exposure to traumatic events can take a toll on the mental health of these professionals. If not treated, mental health conditions can lead to irreparable harm not only to first responder's life but also to their families and the communities they work in.
Command Post Wellness offers highly effective outpatient mental health treatments in Orange County designed to put patients on a solid path to full recovery. We understand no treatment works for everyone, which is why we offer custom treatments or a combination of treatments that work best for individual patients.
