No One Fights Alone - Officer Resiliency and Self-Care

Kevin Briggs, a retired Sergeant with the California Highway Patrol stated, "The collateral damage of suicide affects so many people."  Most of his 23-year career was spent patrolling the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, a site of over 1,600 suicides since it was built in 1937.  Kevin has responded to hundreds of suicide calls, and has had many interactions with the families of those people who have been on the bridge in the darkest of moments.  Brigg's story and experiences have been featured in The New Yorker magazine, Men's Health magazine, NPR's Bob Edwards show, The Steve Harvey Show, People magazine, the Yahoo! Viewfinder documentary entitled, "Guardian of the Golden Gate," and has presented at TED Talk at the TED conference in Vancouver, B.C.
