Cypress Creek Hospital announced the launch of a new online contact tool for its Honor Strong Program in a news release April 21.

The hospital's Honor Strong Program is an acute inpatient program geared to address the unique symptoms experienced by law enforcement, firefighters, emergency medical personnel, active-duty military members, veterans and those serving on the front lines during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. According to the release, the online contact tool was launched in response to a recent increase of suicides in the first responder community and will allow first responders to ask for help confidentially by submitting an online inquiry.

"We are committed to our mission to assist first responders in their recovery," the news release reads. "We serve those who serve and honor their strength in their path to recovery."

In addition to the new online contact tool, first responders may also call the hospital's direct referral line at 281-995-1475, which is staffed 24/7.
