Once the agency’s executive leadership commits to the implementation of a comprehensive wellness and suicide prevention program and paves the way by removing impediments, adopting new paradigms, and initiating policy change, it is critical that the officers who perform day-to-day law enforcement tasks be included in the organization’s vision and strategies for reducing the stigma of help-seeking and harmful attitudes and behaviors. This highly interactive training gives participants the opportunity to learn about the underlying causes of suicide, why the National Suicide Awareness for Law Enforcement Officers (SAFLEO) Program is needed, solutions to barriers to help-seeking, their vital role in the successful implementation of a wellness and suicide prevention program, and how to nurture the program long-term. In addition, participants will be given the opportunity to exchange ideas, strategies, and best practices and conclude by creating specific and individualized action plans.
