Let’s have a conversation about the peers we have in police services, or police service members and their families, suffering in silence and unable to identify what is going on.
🔘 The doors close even if pulled on
🔘 The behaviour continues despite the consequences
🔘 We are very hard on each other
🔘 There are so many hidden police service members suffering
🔘 This must be about all of us
It’s not okay, and it can’t continue this way. Police members are part of our community and they have the same issues our community has. We need to start using person-first language, talking about health outcomes, and continuing to nurture ourselves and our community so that everyone can get help when they need it and no one is left behind.
