MEET OUR FOUNDER
My name is Doris Drake, and I am the owner of Bridging The Gap Mental Health Services. I have had the privilege of working closely with emergency services for 15 years as a 911 Dispatcher in Columbia, SC. After receiving my Master's in Clinical Counseling, I resigned from my position to take on another much-needed role in the emergency services field. I provide various training to emergency services personnel such as training to enhance their psychological and physical lives and mental health response training.
While actively working in the field for 15 years, I understand how stressful the work environment is. I know that there are not enough resources in place to assist 911 personnel with maintaining a healthy lifestyle despite the overwhelming stress and excessive adrenaline that comes with doing this work. It is imperative emergency services personnel to have the knowledge and tools to maintain mental stability.
I look forward to partnering with you as a training consultant to help better the lives of those who help others.
