# 8 Devon Edwards - "I One Hundred Percent Intended To Be Dead"

This episode contains explicit language and sensitive subject matter.  In 2019, more than 350 Police Officers and Fire Fighters died by Suicide.  This is the  story of a Police Officer who intended to take her life multiple times but through good fortune, one good supervisor who listened, and making a call to Code4 NW, did not carry it through. Her story includes losing her father to suicide, grieving for an officer who died in the line of duty, two attempts to talk to a fellow officer (including a peer support member) that were far from ideal, and even a call to a First Responder hotline (not Code4NW), that was of no help at all. 
Fortunately she was connected to a fantastic counselor and with the help of Code 4NW, got the help she needed at a treatment facility. Thank you Devon for your courage to share your experience so others who hear it may be helped.
