First Responders Bridge

Westerville, OH 43082

The First Responders' Bridge is an Ohio-based non-profit 501c3 offering confidential, expense-free retreats for active duty and retired First Responders and their significant other who are coping with depression, anxiety, PTS, cumulative stress, and suicidal thoughts resulting from job-related trauma.   To date, the Bridge has served nearly 11-hundred First Responders from 36-states, predominantly Ohio.  Attendees spend three (3) days learning from Peer Support presenters and working with vetted clinicians who have experience helping First Responders.  The Bridge covers the cost of lodging, meals, and programming because we don't ever want cost to be the reason someone didn't get help.  We rely on donors and corporate sponsors to offer three (3) annual retreats and one (1) annual follow up retreat for past attendees.  To register for a retreat or learn more about the Bridge's mission to help First Responders on their journey from hurting to healing, visit
