POLICE SUICIDE – Blue H.E.L.P: Know the Signs, Save a Life with Christy Lister
On Today’s Podcast
This week I sit down with Christy Lister. Christy Lister a mother of three children and former wife of a police officer, who after 25 years at the police department died by suicide in June of 2019. Christy is passionate about speaking up on mental health for police officers, first responders, and their families while advocating for changes within the mental health policies amongst the departments. Christy has been working with active/retired officers and their families providing education to allow them to understand that mental health is not a matter that should be overlooked or shunned as it has been in the past.
Christy is a founding board member of a local non-for-profit, The Harvesting Hope Project, that allows First Responders and their families to come together in a safe and private rural setting.

Why Blue H.E.L.P.?
It is the mission of Blue 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 law enforcement officers we lost to suicide, support families after a suicide, and to bring awareness to suicide and mental health issues.
