Stress Stigma and Survival in Policing
This training program is about recognizing the stress that often accompanies the critical incidents that officers respond to and then dealing with it. At MPI, we believe that by collectively, working together, we can come to the aid of those officers who need help dealing with stress. Having a greater awareness of the symptoms of post-traumatic stress is a great place to start. Having a plan in place to confront it at department levels, or access to professional counseling is a must.
