Beneath the Vest is a series of short films by OC87 Recovery Diaries featuring 8 stirring stories of real first responders who have struggled with mental health challenges and came out on the other side. These brave men and women demonstrate that seeking help is a strength, not a weakness, and that hope and recovery are possible.
OC87 Recovery Diaries, together with NAMI Montgomery County PA, Brooke Glen Behavioral Hospital and Montgomery County Department of Public Safety present an evening of open discussion on the anxiety, depression, complex PTSD, repeated exposure to trauma, relationship issues and substance abuse problems endemic to first responder culture, which sometimes perpetuates a stigma against seeking help.
Rob Davis, Police Officer
Ed Pila, Police Officer (Ret.)
Craig Tinneny, Dispatcher
Joseph Peterson, Police Officer
Michelle Monzo, Instructor
Ron Griffith, Police Officer (Ret.)
Ian Stoddart, Paramedic
Ashley Neubauer, Paramedic/Firefighter
