CODE 9 HEROES AND FAMILIES UNITED is a 501 (c)(3) TAX EXEMPT ORGANIZATION
While we expect many of our returning war veterans to experience PTSD, we generally have little awareness of, and offer almost no treatment for, our police force here at home. This lack of recognition and treatment has destroyed careers and families.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may develop after a person is exposed to one or more traumatic events - either experiencing it or witnessing it, and those who pick up the pieces afterwards, including law enforcement and emergency workers. Symptoms may include disturbing recurring flashbacks, nightmares, avoidance or numbing of memories of the event, hyper-arousal and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event. PTSD can lead to suicide if not properly handled and unfortunately suicide is the leading cause of death for our police officers.
