The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs has released a toolkit for Veterans, their families, and friends to help them support those who might be struggling with emotional distress, crises, or thoughts of suicide on social media.
Take some time to read through the Toolkit and share it with others who you think could use it!
The national (USA) suicide hotline. Not first responder specific, but they can and will talk to anyone who needs help. We’ve been told by one of their founders they have a large number of first responders and veterans who volunteer.
We recognize that many of you are doing a great job practicing self-care. So, we thought it’d be helpful to provide some self-care tactics to those who are already practicing a good amount of self-care or who just want to go that extra mile!
