After the Call is the culmination of his passion for First Responders and Mental Health Awareness. Nick takes an holistic approach to First Responder Mental Wellness and pushes back against the idea that PTSD is the only disorder to wreak havoc among this population. Nick understands that the level of stress and pressure felt by those in this field will be experienced in a multitude of ways; not simply ending with a PTSD diagnosis. Nick often offers contrarian ideals to the current mental wellness atmosphere and works hard to correct and eliminate inaccurate information that is widely spread from media and other sources. Nick is open to starting conversations and offering input that is novel and strives to offer "not another boring mental wellness training".
Nick brings to the field not just experience as a First Responder, but also as a clinical practitioner with experience in a wide range of clinical settings including: crisis settings, hospital settings, and within the addiction sector. Nick currently works within the Mental Health specific health care. Nick also runs a private therapy practice for First Responders in Peterborough.
Nick has written a book to help First Responders and their families begin conversations about mental wellness. Nick has presented extensively on the topic of First Responder Mental Wellness. In addition, Nick offers personalized programming and workshops for First Responders to help them close the gaps within their departments, as well as consultation services.
Nick is a co-founder and Clinical Director of the After The Call's CISM team branch.
