Birdwell Foundation For PTSD Partners With Matthew Marin To Reduce Veteran And First Responder Suicide

Houston Police Officer with daughter reviewing "Silent Screams" book with stories to help First Responders with PTSD find hope and help
HOUSTON, July 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Matthew Marin, veteran, decorated Houston Police Officer, and author of best-selling book, "The Silent Screams," is combining forces with the Birdwell Foundation to raise awareness of rampant PTSD suffering of first responders and veterans and to help save lives of overstressed officers in the Miami and Houston Police Departments. The public can help.

By writing "Adopt a first responder" in the memo section of the Donor box on, contributors of $15 can adopt a first responder in the Miami or Houston PD. An officer will receive the book, a tool for them and their families to spot red flags in themselves and co-workers. This could help them get help before they reach the point of no return.

Stress is enormous. Suicide and divorce rates are at an all-time high within first responders, frequently stemming from PTSD symptoms. Saving the world takes the bravery of gods. But while the world loves heroes, it misses acknowledging officers who don't wear capes. Protecting and preserving the values of society is a burden for which the enforcers pay a high price.

More on
That price is revealed in the lucid and compelling real-life stories in "The Silent Screams."  They take the reader through a journey of the reality of military, para-military, and law enforcement service personnel and how they cope.

Sometimes, veterans and first responders have to live and relive their old lives in their new realities away from the field. For many, they remain haunted by the trauma of the hazards they escape daily. Those deserving reintegration are the ones who struggle to find therapy outside of their work, the ones who try so hard to flow seamlessly between work life and home.

That's where the Birdwell Foundation's programs and Marin's stories step in. The book offers understanding of the effects of PTSD on loved ones who face the terrors of the field daily and lends insight into some practical ways to manage it.

Help the Birdwell Foundation for PTSD combat suicide and educate the nation's heroes who serve selflessly every day. Show them they matter to their communities and have the Foundation to support them and their well-being.
