CHATHAM POLICE DEPARTMENT: National Suicide Prevention Lifeline provides 24/7
Chatham Police Department issued the following announcement on April 3.
We've got to do a better job looking out for one another. Seriously, we do.
Not just in the Police, Fire, and EMS world, where first responder suicide rates have spiked and are at an all time high, but just in everyday life, too. We ALL go through ups and downs, and anyone can be struggling. The thing about mental health is that not all wounds are visible, and, the sad reality is that someone may be struggling right in front of us without us even realizing it. That's why its so important to know what to look for. We all can play a part in preventing suicide if we know the warning signs.
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones, and best practices for professionals. It can be contacted at 1-800-273-8255. Please take advantage of this excellent resource if you or anyone you know needs it!
