Red H.E.L.P.

Honoring the Service of Firefighters Who Died by Suicide

 

It is the mission of Red 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 firefighters  we lost to suicide, support families after a suicide and to bring awareness to suicide and mental health issues.

Honor. Educate. Lead. Prevent.

We believe that firefighters who suffer emotional injuries should be recognized and their service to the community honored.

We believe it’s time to put names and faces to the men and women who have died because their emotional injuries became too much to bear.

We believe it’s time to support the families who have lost loved ones to those injuries.

We believe in the saying, “We honor the dead by caring for the living.”

Our Family

The world of first responders is challenging at best, and while many agencies and organizations have worked to make the job physically safer with new tactics, equipment, and policy, the same cannot be said for first responder mental health.  First H.E.L.P seeks to change that by bringing together credible representatives from each first responder discipline to serve as a voice for those who work in the field and those families that stand behind them.
