Lift The Mask – First Responder Sound The Alarm


This feature length documentary was produced by the Quell Foundation as part of their First Responder Resilience Project. The goal of this film is to help reduce the stigma around talking about mental health; a major issue in the first responder community. Fire Fighters, Police, EMS, and Dispatchers face trauma everyday. They are far more likely to suffer from mental health issues and complete their own suicide than the rest of the population. But because of the culture they work in they are likely to face ridicule and the possibility of losing their jobs if they speak up.

Director – Jonathan Pushnik
