Description

Matthew Fiorenza has been a Firefighter/Paramedic in Southern California for 18 years. After 10 years on the job he began having issues with anxiety, stress and depression and was later diagnosed with PTSD. Matthew’s life began to unravel as he found himself spiraling out of control with pain medication, and alcohol as he suffered alone with anxiety, depression and PTSD. Matthew found himself contemplating suicide by cop when he was brought to his moment of clarity by two Sheriff Deputies and he was given hope. Through it all and with the help of his wife, children and the support of his friends he was able to turn it all around and return to work. Matthew now shares his story of survival and is a strong advocate for others who may be suffering in silence.
