Survey Findings

Call for Backup and its sister organization, Humanizing the Badge, have been conducting research for the past 3 years on mental health in emergency services.  Here are some of the things we've discovered:

There is startling and staggering information about why police officers would consider suicide.  See the data here: Police Suicide Survey

First responders are concerned about how the things they see on the job affect them emotionally.  See the data here: Call for Backup Program Survey

First responders prefer participation in peer support programs versus mandatory appointments with clinicians.  See the data here: Mental Wellness for First Responders

First responders overwhelmingly believe there is still a stigma associated with seeking help for mental wellness.  See the data here: Mental Health Stigma

If you have questions about any of our survey data, we'd be happy to talk to you about it if you would like to CONTACT US.
