159 officers have died by suicide in 2019 to date, including 24 retired officers. It’s time we devote a day of awareness, understanding and thanks to these officers who gave their lives to the service of their communities.

Honoring the Service of Law Enforcement Officers who Died by Suicide
- We believe that officers who suffer emotional injuries should be recognized and their service to the community honored.
- We believe it’s time to put names and faces to the men and women who have died because their emotional injuries became too much to bear.
- We believe it’s time to support the families who have lost loved ones to those injuries.
- We believe in the saying, “It is not how they died that mattered, it is how they lived.”
The Blue H.E.L.P. Mission
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.
–> Remind yourself that sometimes, you need to lend an ear to your friends.
At the bottom line, it’s all about saving just ONE life.
