Bennett goes on a rant about Preventing Suicide!!!
How To Prevent Suicide, Subscribe to Cigars and Sea Stories; on this episode of Cigars and Sea Stories Mike and Bennett discuss how they handle veteran suicide. The short and skinny is, subscribe to Cigars and Sea Stories so we can all hangout together and bullshit. We don’t mess around when it comes to helping fellow veterans. It’s all about maintaining the tribe.
It’s a serious topic that we approach from a different angle, that of the veteran and the responder. We provide a few points on how to better handle suicide prevention in the system. Such as having people in need check themselves into the hospital rather than enter thru the emergency room. Sending un-uniformed officers to the homes of those in need and ensuring those officers are veterans who have received training and can provide resources.
It is important to have a sense of purpose within a team of individuals who are working toward something larger than themselves. It requires devotion and selfless sacrifice, something rarely found outside of the military; especially in modern America. The idea of tribe is lost in a world full of individuals. Thank God we’ll always have each other, good cigars and outrageous sea stories.
