Blue

Some of you know that prevention of police suicides is a huge part of PWoK’s passion. One of our long term goals has been to network and connect with those who can put forth a suicide prevention program for our officers, statewide, and bring light to the stigmas facing these heroes.

I woke up with this on my heart this morning, and found the title of our sermon at church today to be “My Brother’s Keeper.” Whoa, right?? I told my husband on our way home how much it has been weighing on me. Even more than usual.

You ARE your brother’s keeper. It’s time for this to change.

Blue: A Documentary

Blue is a documentary that demonstrates how the Philadelphia Police Department has made strides in addressing the stigmas often associated with officer mental health and suicide in the policing profession and prioritized the wellbeing of its officers. It illustrates how the department is approaching these sensitive topics head on by creating an environment and support structure that proactively helps officers and encourages them to openly address any problems they might be having with on or off-the-job stressors.
