OD014 | Overcoming the Stigma
Overcoming the Stigma
We have a goal of overcoming the stigma associated with mental health. Officers experience a lot of difficult, disturbing situations, and they should not have to fear for their job security because they ask for help.
This weekly snippet-video series sends the ongoing message to officers & leadership that seeking help will make officers stronger, healthier, and more resilient - which results in safer outcomes.
52 weeks of video messages are included in this course series, totaling 8 hours of training for the year on this topic. This gradual, consistent, ongoing saturation of the message will help officers & their leaders begin to value the importance of using mental health resources to stay strong and safe on the job.
Enroll your agency. We'll request a list of officer names & email addresses, and then activate an account for each of them. Every week they will receive a video-embedded email with a 5-10 minute video explaining the benefits of seeking mental health resources to deal with the compounded trauma experienced in their difficult jobs. The videos will then be added, weekly, to the online classroom -- so videos can be accessed later, re-watched, or watched many at a time, in succession.
