How can we do more for wellbeing?
Join our panel of experts as they discuss how to tackle growing mental health issues and more in UK policing, hosted by our own Justice and Policing Lead, Charlotte Hails.
Under-resourced, under attack and witness to countless violent scenes – it’s easy to see why policing is one of the UK’s top five most stressful jobs.
45% of officers sleep fewer than six hours per night, with shift patterns restricting their time at home and causing a lack of work/life balance.
So how is this affecting their mental and physical health? What impact does it have on their day-to-day job? And how do we work together to make sure things get better?
Our recent roundtable discussion answers all these questions and more, with insight from Chief Constable Chris Noble from Staffordshire Police, Detective Superintendent Tanya Wilkins from West Yorkshire Police, and Bill Skelly QPM, Chair of the Police Sport UK fundraising body Team Police.
- The impact of stress on police officer and staff physical and mental health, why wellbeing is so important and what’s already being done to improve things
- The role that organised sport can play in promoting better health and general wellbeing amongst police officers and staff
- Advice for anyone in policing who needs support with their own wellbeing or wants to know how to better support their colleagues
