Law Enforcement Wellness: Suicide Prevention is an seven-hour program that provides a comprehensive look at stress management and suicide prevention for law enforcement and corrections professionals. Each year, many law enforcement officers die by suicide. Factors that contribute to this are exposure to violence, job-related stressors, depression, and anxiety; however, there is a positive side to this narrative: suicide is preventable.

This class will focus on learning the warning signs of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and suicide. Participants will learn how to overcome the stigma associated with seeking help, and how to develop department policies, protocols, and procedures to help officers at risk.
