On every shift, police officers experience boundless stressors that can range from the merest encounter to outright chaos.

We will discuss practices that will promote mental health and wellness awareness. We will also introduce a paradigm shift in addressing factors inherent with the law enforcement organizational and cultural norms that provides a new innovating way to implement suicide prevention within an agency.
