Sadly another Police Officer has taken their life, sadly when we look at the support available directly for police officers and members of the police officers it isn’t great.
That is why we are launching ‘COPS MINDS’ our policing support service giving police officers and support staff a place to turn when they are suffering alone, to reduce the feelings of mental health and creating a supportive service.
Cops Minds aims to offer a place to, it’s OK not to be OK, offering support to those who are serving within the thin blue line.
It must be really important to create a support service for police officers where It is important for those who are struggling to know they are not alone and there is people out there who can help.
We aim to launch this service and support for officers who are suffering in silence and need to reach out for support.
We will aim to launch this within a non-judgemental non-clinical environment that will offer great support for those within the police service who will benefit from this level of support.
We’ll fundraiser to launch service to raise funds to support private mental health counselling and treatment programmes that will offer a direct access root to mental health support for police officers.
Unfourantely during a mental health crisis more support is needed especially for those within the police service and our aim is to launch this level of support.
What we can say is it’s ok to not be ok. Please talk to someone if you need to.
It’s important for those perhaps struggling to know they are not alone – and there are people there to help.
