The Back The Blue And Green Community supports the efforts of Blue H.E.L.P.
It is the mission of Blue H.E.L.P. to reduce mental health stigma through education, advocate for benefits for those suffering from post-traumatic stress, acknowledge the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers we lost to suicide, assist officers in their search for healing, and to bring awareness to suicide and mental health issues.
Why Back The Blue And Green Supports Blue H.E.L.P.
“Blue H.E.L.P. was created for one simple reason – three friends saw a gap and decided someone needs to fill it. The gap? Care for families after a law enforcement suicide. Mental health awareness for officers before a suicide. Access to the resources that are available to all First Responders to assist them in making it through their career whole.
The gap is wide, and while we are a small bridge over it, we are steadfast in our mission. That mission includes honoring the service of those who die by suicide on our website; reducing mental health stigma through education; advocating for benefits for those suffering from post-traumatic stress, assisting officers in their search for healing, and to bringing awareness to suicide and mental health issues.
We know suicides is complicated, we know not all officers have post-traumatic stress. We also know that without a place for their families to gather, without a baseline for the number of deaths and without a collaboration of people and ideas, no change will come.”
BLUE H.E.L.P. is a registered 501(c)3 that has achieved the 2018 Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStarTM. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
