Dear CorrectionsOne Member,

“As a nation, we must fight the stigmas surrounding mental illness and empower those affected by emotional distress and their loved ones to seek care.” – President Donald. J. Trump, Proclamation on National Mental Health Awareness Month, 2020

Each May, our country commits to prioritizing mental health awareness, not only in regard to providing resources for assistance, but also to ensure the conversation about mental illness remains stigma-free. Mental Health Awareness Month serves as a reminder that if you are struggling with your mental health, you are not alone – 1 in 5 people experience some sort of mental illness at least once in their lifetime, with anxiety disorders the most common.

In today’s newsletter, we address:
  • How to stop the negative self-talk that can be a barrier to seeking care
  • How correctional leaders can recognize stress among their personnel
  • How correctional officers can support each other during times of stress.
For additional strategies to develop wellness programs and other coping techniques to mitigate the potentially dangerous effects of a career in law enforcement, download this free ebook from our sister site, PoliceOne.com. Stay safe.
