Generally speaking, First Responders are reluctant to seek help; like many people who work in the helping professions, First Responders are used to being the helpers—not being in the position of looking to someone else for assistance. One of the most serious consequences of this attitude toward seeking help is the sad fact that, for the last three years, more responders have died by suicide than were killed in the line of duty.

We need to BREAK THE SILENCE about suicide and about suffering.

I Run To Danger was created by a police officer (me).  I would gladly talk to you directly and discuss anything..completely anonymously.  My direct phone number is 269-298-5737.  If you don't want to talk to me then please understand that you are not alone.  There are resources for you.  PLEASE use them!   We need you here with us.

If you need to talk, email or call and start the voicemail or the email with the word HELP and I will call you day or night.
