National Police Suicide Foundation
http://www.psf.org/
The numbers of deaths due to suicide are 2 to 3 times the number of line of duty deaths among law enforcement agencies and emergency workers. Due to the increasing number of suicides in these professions, we have formed the National P.O.L.I.C.E. Suicide Foundation, Inc. We feel many of these suicides occur because of the high "stress" level of these professions and a lack of "awareness" of the signs and symptoms and prevention techniques. The mission of the National P.O.L.I.C.E. Suicide Foundation is to provide suicide awareness and prevention training programs and support services that will meet the psychological and spiritual needs of emergency workers and their families.
