Our Confidential Counselors are so Important and we accomplish a lot together.

The Greg Lindmark Foundation provides CONFIDENTIAL counseling for any first responder who is having difficulties. There IS help. As first responders, you do not do your jobs alone. You don’t have to deal with the fallout from it or your personal lives alone. We have experienced, licensed, qualified professionals who are available to help! They are all experienced in working with first responders, trauma, and assisting those in need. We are the first responders for the first responder.

Whether you are dealing with traumas from work, stress from work and/or home, feeling down, anxious, feeling that no one understands, struggling with alcohol or substances, or thinking that suicide is a viable option…..we can help. Simply choose a professional from our list of counselors, contact them and let them know you are calling about the Greg Lindmark Foundation. An appointment will be set up for you by the counselor and you just have to show up and meet with them. Everything else is taken care of.

The Greg Lindmark Foundation does not know and does not ask who you are; that is to protect your confidentiality. We do not contact your agency because we do not know who you are. We act behind the scenes, pay the bills, and raise funds for outreach. All you need to do is reach out and make contact with one of the listed professionals. Please be aware that this is not a crisis line. It may take a short period of time for the professional to get back to you and set up an appointment.
