Did you know . . .
. . . over 43% of police officers have personally known an officer or former officer that has completed a suicide?
. . . over 78% of police officers are personally aware of a department or agency that has lost an officer to suicide?
. . . that the greatest concerns of police officers are the stigma associated with mental health issues and their departments’ seeming lack of support?
Humanizing the Badge’s unique #CallForBackup Suicide Awareness and Prevention Campaign seeks to address those concerns, and to teach officers how to help one another – and themselves – deal with the unique stresses of their chosen profession.
If you are struggling, it’s time to Call for Backup!
