Like all 999 services, paid or unpaid, Mountain Rescue Teams can be put under immense stress when attending callouts. We don't often like to talk about it, but Mountain Rescue Teams regularly have to deal with Serious injuries, deaths/suicides, body recovery and more. All of which take their toll on the individuals and families involved. So today, on World Mental Health Awareness Day, the Little Mountain Rescue Team are sitting down to have a cuppa and a chat.
As National Air Ambulance Week comes to a close we're giving a big shout out to our colleagues with the Air Ambulance Charities across the UK. Many Mountain Rescue Teams find themselves responding to medical emergencies alongside the Air Ambulance crews, with our skillsets and capabilities complimenting each other. #Team999 #SARFamily #PHEM
No matter how dark life seems there is always someone you can talk to. Just over 20 out of 100 people have suicidal thoughts at some point in their lifetime with 7 out of 100 attempting suicide. Every 90 minutes someone in the UK takes their own life.
It's ok to talk.

Mountain Rescue teams across the UK were out supporting the emergency services as The Beast From The East and Storm Emma left many arterial roads impassable, drivers stranded and essential health service personnel without transport. All teams in Mountain Rescue England and Wales are made up entirely of volunteers and receive no public funding. Please take a moment to find your local team(s), like and follow their pages, and if you’re able to consider donating to help support them.
