BACK UP'S HERE!

BACK UP'S HERE!
WE WILL ALWAYS HAVE YOUR SIX

A recent survey found that 6.6% of first responders had attempted suicide at least once, this is 10 times the rate of the general population!

You are NOT alone!

There are no two life situations that are the same, however the feelings we get are. The feeling of hopelessness and  dread creep in, and we don't know what to do except to end the pain. There are so many of us that have felt that exact same way. 

Please

Please

Please

Pick up the phone and talk to someone, anyone! 

There is no shame or loss of pride to tell someone how you're feeling. You are stronger than you know.

 After all, we ALL need backup from time to time.
