Fiona Thomas

Austin, TX - 2017 Lady GODIVA Honoree

Organization:

The Code Green Campaign

Original Nomination:

- Nominated by: Temple Thomas

In Her Own Words:

As a paramedic, Fiona saw first hand the need for recognition of mental health issues faced by first responders -- men and women who witness some of life’s most traumatic and graphic moments.

She teamed up with two fellow paramedics to form the Code Green Campaign. Their primary goal is to raise awareness of the high rates of mental health issues, substance abuse, and suicide among first responders, and to teach responders how to provide self-care and recognize issues in their peers.

Fiona puts in countless hours developing the teaching curriculum and pushing the Code Green Campaign toward national recognition, so that they may reach as many responders in need as possible
