As First Responders, you have the opportunity to make a difference within your community and profession in regard to mental health and suicide. Being on the front lines of danger and many times the first on the scene of a traumatic experience, First Responders are in a unique position to have a lasting impact on the community. Suicide currently ranks as the second leading cause of death for youth ages 10 – 24. More First Responders lose their life to suicide than in the line of duty. Police Officers, Firefighters, and EMS Workers are more likely to suffer from PTSD than the general public.
The Jason Foundation is proud to offer our First Responders Training Module: Addressing Suicide with Youth in the Community and within the Profession. The goal of this training is to provide First Responders with the knowledge, skills and resources to enable them to be better able to recognize the signs of concern and elevated risk factors for suicidal ideation in youth within their community, as well as in co-workers and fellow first responders.
