Devon and Cornwall Police entered into a strategic alliance with Dorset Police in 2016. This week I am delighted to speak with PS Regie Butler about his well being team within the alliance. They offer peer support to Officers and staff and have introduced some interesting initiatives seen as “icebreakers” to kick start the discussion of mental health and well being within the organisations. Regie also shares his own personal experience that nearly lead to his death.
“I’ve had some experiences in my life in which I nearly killed myself.”
