National Suicide Prevention Week is September 4–10 and the Boise Police Department hopes this week serves as a reminder that you are not alone, you matter and there is hope.
This month, you may see officers wearing and sharing wristbands with similar messages. Officers often respond to calls for service involving a suicide or suicide attempt and every time it’s a tragedy for officers, friends, families, schools, and entire communities.
Preventing suicide is a community effort and one that our city and state support through the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline. If you or someone you know is struggling or needs support now, you can call or text 988, or visit call988idaho.com.
