Join us for a virtual, interactive town hall style event in support of the first responder community.

Together, we can collaboratively identify ways the first responder community can help guide our important research and advocacy programs and help move the research forward in a meaningful direction.



First responders understand the unique physical and environmental hazards associated with being on the front line of disasters and emergencies.

Recent research has shown that the long hours, poor sleep quality and mental strain of repeated exposure to high stress situations on the job can take a toll on the mental health and well being of these essential workers. As a result, many first responders experience higher rates of health-related outcomes such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression, conditions collectively referred to as the “invisible wounds”. Moreover, it was recently reported that more firefighters and police officers are dying by suicide than in the line of duty. Yet awareness of the potential long-term mental health consequences of job-related stress exposure and their association with suicide remains limited among first responders and gaps in the current scientific research have left many waiting for more effective treatments for these invisible wounds.

CVB’s Approach: 

Cohen Veterans Bioscience (CVB) is the only non-profit research organization that is specifically targeting
these research gaps to improve outcomes for all individuals effected by the invisible wounds, including first responders. However, our research can only be successful when we work in partnership with those most effected by the conditions we aim to treat.
