Supporting Law Enforcement - Mending Fractured Relationships - Building Trust

Bank the Blue is a non-profit organization that provides mental health support, resources and training for Cook County law enforcement officers so they can better serve and protect our communities.
Now, more than ever, many police officers struggle with mental health issues due to their constant exposure to violent and traumatic situations; local departments alone cannot meet their dire needs. Bank the Blue is determined to fill this gap. According to mental health experts, the rate for post- traumatic stress disorder and depression among police officers is five times higher than that of the civilian population and often goes untreated. According to the U.S. Department of Justice’s 2017 report, Chicago’s police suicide rate is 60 percent higher than the national law enforcement average.
The Chicago area needs healthy and engaged law enforcement officers working in partnership with the communities they serve. We have compiled a group of extraordinary mental health professionals to provide competent and therapeutic care specifically geared for law enforcement.
Bank the Blue believes that by providing support to communities, mending broken police/community relationships and providing access to resources will foster a collaborative partnership to reduce crime in Chicago area neighborhoods.
Bank the Blue is counting on the support of generous donors, including individuals and corporations, to join us in ensuring these front-line workers and community members have access to the services they desperately need.  Contributions to Bank the Blue are tax deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law. Please check with your personal tax advisor regarding the deduction of your gift.
