Honor Behind the Badge
A Tough Conversation
Tuesday, August 18, 2020
Tonight we talked with Special Guests Karen Solomon from 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.
Karen is the creator of and the author of Hearts Beneath the Badge and The Price They Pay as well as many articles about law enforcement suicid. Her focus is the stories of the families who have lost an officer to suicide and the officers who suffer with the feeling that they have nowhere to turn. Karen was a member of the 2018 Officer Safety and Wellness Group Meeting and is currently the co-Chair of the Data and Research Committee of the National Consortium on Law Enforcement Suicide Prevention.
Next month, TBB and Blue H.E.L.P. are partnering up for the Heroes Bridge Dedication. Click the second link below to purchase your brick to support this amazing project!
