BLUE WALL INSTITUTE

image45

The Blue Wall Institute is a recognized provider of first responder (e.g., Police, Fire, EMS, Military, Corrections, Dispatchers, Clergy, and Medical Personnel) wellness training. The Blue Wall Institute was founded in response to the high number of yearly first responder suicides. 

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for our first responders by educating them on all the dangers of the job. We take a holistic approach, in that we not only include first responders in our training, but supervisors, administrators, and first responder families. A first responder in need of assistance may not see a problem for what it is. Their judgment and perception may be clouded, which is why including those closest to the first responder in training is an essential part of saving lives and averting tragedy, as we believe "saving lives begins in the classroom."™

The Blue Wall Institute focuses on: overall first responder wellness, suicide awareness and prevention, stress and anger management, resilience building, substance use and abuse, heart health, speaking with health care providers, critical incident stress, and PTSD. 

BREAK EVERY CHAIN

image46

Police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and military members all see the innermost of our dark and fallen world. Jonathan Hickory gives us a veteran police officer’s intimate perspective into the struggle that many of our heroes battle in their hearts.

Drowning in the depths of depression and sadness, burning with anger, and chained down by alcoholism, Jonathan couldn’t do anymore. After the death of his father as a young boy, facing countless horrific death scenes in the line of duty, and the loss of his first son, Jonathan turned to the world for answers—finding only darkness. Facing the threat of losing his job as a police officer, the loss of his wife and daughter, and contemplating suicide, Jonathan turns to the only one who can truly save; Jesus.

Read the powerful true story of how a step into faith saved Jonathan from the clutches of sin and addiction, changing his life forever. This amazing true story of grace and the life changing power of Jesus Christ is guaranteed to encourage everyone who reads it.
