The mental and physical well-being of first responders is now considered a top priority by police and fire departments across the nation. The Association has made coping with trauma-related impacts a priority for its members. A new research report that analyzes suicide among first responders was published in the Journal of Safety Research this Spring.
The study provides comparisons of first-responder and non-first-responder suicides, including prevalence and issues preceding suicide. You can read the study by clicking here.
