Share Article

Online therapy offers a resource for officers and military personnel concerned about privacy and confidentiality, factors essential to those who fear negative career effects for those who seek help. Online counseling allows clients to receive counseling from the comfort of their own home, in a confidential environment, at a more affordable price than traditional counseling.

Police stress and suicide has become a topic of major concern and focus in the last few years. The NYPD suffered eleven police suicides within the first nine months of 1995 alone with a police agency of over 38,000 officers (Insight, 1994). Across the country in the last few years, police agencies and municipalities have been clambering to initiate and implement some form of police mental health services for their officers. However, while larger urban departments can provide financial backing and manpower to its stress units, many smaller departments struggle to find ways to provide services. Recent statistics regarding the rise in suicide among returning Iraq veterans provide evidence that military people are faced with the similar difficulties dealing with the stress of combat and military life.
