Our Mission is...
To provide educational, financial and emotional support and counseling to police, fire, and other emergency personnel and their families, particularly those affected by PTSD and other occupational related stress disorders.
Facts About PTSD
The Ruderman Foundation commissioned a paper in April 2018 on Mental Health and Suicide in First Responders. The study found in 2017 there were 103 reported firefighter suicides compared to the 93 firefighters killed in the line of duty, as well as 140 reported police officer suicides compared to the 129 killed in the line of duty. These numbers are considered low as many first responder suicides are not reported.
