"Silence Can Be Deadly"

Posted by Christopher Vargo on

We here at Freedom Fatigues are committed to reducing/eliminating suicide for all first responders through awareness, education, and supporting non-profits committed to our mission. This is a national crisis that requires a concerted approach.

Police officers and firefighters are taking their own lives at an alarming rate. According to statistics reported by Blue H.E.L.P., a nonprofit dedicated to preventing police suicide, 160 officers took their own lives in 2018. It's unacceptable, and we are failing our brothers and sisters. It's time we start talking about mental health and get rid of the stigma associated with admitting you are suffering inside with cumulative PTSD.

Click here, here and here for articles that address the mental health issues our first responders face on a daily basis. As always, we salute our first responders.
