This Guide is written in language familiar to those serving our communities and is intended to help those in law enforcement be able to recognize a fellow officer who might be at risk of suicide and how to take action to help them. It addresses issues specific to officers including confidentiality and disclosures, cultural differences, distressing content posted on Facebook and provides suggested resources.
