In helping others through their most difficult times, medical professionals and Emergency Responders often put their own wellness on hold
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (PRWEB) November 26, 2021
Uniform Advantage (UA), a multi-channel retailer of uniforms for the medical and hospitality industries, recently announced a $25,000 donation to the All Clear Foundation (ACF).
The award was used to create ACF’s YOU|ResponderStrong Stress Management Coaching Series, a support tool for Emergency Responders, including frontline medical workers, and their families.
“In helping others through their most difficult times, medical professionals and Emergency Responders often put their own wellness on hold,” said Uniform Advantage® CEO Susan Masimore. “ACF is always there to help the helpers – and we’re proud to support their efforts.”
YOU|ResponderStrong is a free, confidential digital platform available 24/7 to help those who respond to emergencies and their families recover and recharge. From the initial sign-up, users will have immediate access to this video coaching series designed to increase understanding and to create the skills to effectively manage stress, improving quality of life.
“Responding to emergencies has always been challenging work. However, the past few years have significantly increased the burdens placed upon the human behind the badge, the scrubs and the uniform. Burnout, compassion fatigue, and anxiety are on the rise. This is how we support those who support our communities, often at great personal sacrifice,” explained Rhonda Kelly, Executive Director of All Clear Foundation.
“More than ever, we owe a huge debt to our healthcare heroes,” said Masimore. “UA and its employees are privileged to support them and give back in any way we can.”
