Roll With The Punches

Who are our heroes?  First Responders.Who are their heroes?  *silence*Essentially, they live their lives devoted to taking care of humanity.  Because somewhere deep within them, is a burning desire to care for people. Not just their own people, but all people.  And thus, they chase their dreams and devote their lives to a career as a first responder.  A career that can deliver all of the promises... and eventually sometimes break them too.Michael Sugrue spent 20 years in US Law Enforcement.  First in the US Air Force before joining the Walnut Creek Police Department.  Today he opens up and recounts in vivid detail the moment he fired his weapon and took a life... the moment he had to do so, in order to save the lives of many.  This incident that earned him Walnut Creek PD Distinguished Service Medal in 2014.  This incident piled on top of many and dragged him down for years before he medically retired in 2018.When people like Michael speak up it is a gift, and one that I am grateful has landed in front of my mic today...  I thank him for sharing his story, for getting vulnerable and for seeing the power for everybody in his own recovery.Now a volunteer and advocate for PTSI and first responder suicide prevention, you can follow Michael on the following platforms:facebook.com/firstrespondersfirst8  |  @firstrespondersfirst  |  https://saveawarrior.org  |  www.frsn.org/west-coast-post-trauma-retreat www.tiffaneeandco.com.au  |  @rollwiththepunches_podcast  |  @tiffaneeandco EPISODE SPONSOR: TRY escape Landscape Design & Construction | www.facebook.com/tryescape | @tryescape--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/roll-withthepunches/message

Positive Connections Radio

Podcast 50: Positive Connections RadioFighting Through the Darkest Times in Law EnforcementRetired U.S. Air Force Captain and Police Sergeant Michael Sugrue joins me again on Positive Connections Radio for my 50th episode. Michael speaks up about smashing the stigma and going all in to get the help you need. How Command Staff (showing their true leadership abilities) can set the bar and open the doors for officers getting mental health assistance. Trusting that it is ok to ask for help. Asking for help before it is too late to keep your job and perform your duties once honored and respected with the passion for helping others. How can we help others in these times of chaos when we refuse to admit that we need help ourselves. www.MentalHealthNewsRadio.comwww.positiveconnectionsradio.com
