Officer Wellness:

Shining the Light on Mental Illness, Trauma, and Suicide in Law Enforcement & Emergency Services:

In these powerfully heartfelt, hope and recovery focused 2-4 hr. seminars, we discuss openly, honestly, and frankly of how many lives are riddled with personal struggles and trials in Law Enforcement.  We have a variety of experiences including severe battles with stress, depression, self-destructive and suicidal behavior.   Including events such as the 2014 Civil Unrest in Ferguson, MO as well as many other traumatic situations can impact officer wellness.  With these experiences, along with decades of professional and personal experience into this dynamic presentation, we provide a real-life, ‘no-nonsense’ approach to the issues of officer wellness including mental health in law enforcement, mental illness, symptoms of stress and depression, stigmas, communication skills, and suicide awareness and prevention among law enforcement officers and emergency services workers.
