Suicide / Stress Reduction Manual
The follow link is to the San Jose Fire Department Suicide / Stress Reduction Manual. Like all documents it reflects the efforts of a very progressive department when dealing with depression and suicide reduction.
Nothing is perfect but NAFFVN feels that this has covered all the bases when you or your department deals with the subject. Have a read and use this as a working template to shape and craft your own version. Having the tools in the tool box of stress reduction comes under the NAFFVN heading of the F.I.R.E.S. Within Suicide Risk Reduction Program. F.I.R.E.S. meaning Firefighter/First Responder Increased Risk Exposure to Suicide.
