Donate To A Badge of Honor
Did you know that law enforcement officers and firefighters are more likely to die by suicide than in the line of duty? Furthermore, EMS providers are 1.39 times more likely to die by suicide than the public. Studies have found that between 17% and 24% of public safety telecommunicators have symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and 24% have symptoms of depression. While telecommunicators are often the very first responders engaged with those on scene, research on their suicide risk and mental health has lagged.
Most departments face a mental health budget which is often limited. That's where you can help.
