As we head into the holidays please remember that a lot of people suffer especially during this time of year. Keep them in your prayers.
I struggled. I was in a dark place for a long time. I was in pain, and I masked it with alcohol. I was contemplating hurting myself. I finally decided to reach out and ask for help, and I am grateful I did. FHE Health and The Shatterproof Program saved my life. If you are struggling, you don’t have to stay there. We can and will help you. Reach out today at 303.960.9819.
There is so much power when First Responders start telling their stories of the challenges they have or currently face and the dark places they had to navigate along the way. There is hope and you are not alone. You are never alone.
Such an honor to have my friend Michael Sugrue back on the show. Michael has been in those dark places where he wanted to end his life. Michael did what so many don't do...He reached out for help.
Michael is now a dedicated advocate for awareness, prevention, education, training on Post Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI) and First Responder Suicide Prevention. Michael continues to speak at law enforcement agencies all over the United States.
In his BEST-SELLING book, RELENTLESS COURAGE: Winning the Battle Against Frontline Trauma, along with Dr. Shauna Springer, PhD, they tackle the complexity of trauma within the law enforcement community, uncovering the unspoken barriers, and outline a path to healing.
Such a powerful show and please share with someone that needs it.
