Today, in the United States, violence happens anywhere, anytime and is not limited to our socio-economic status or a certain neighborhoods.
As first responders, police officers are not immune to the psychological impact that acts of violence can have on them, often affecting an officer’s mental health and well-being. It is vital that police officers prioritize self-care, maintain their mental health and improve their resilience so they can be mentally and physically healthy to meet the demands of the job and serve their community with pride.
Recently, in partnership with Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and Washington DC police department (MPD) we offered our nonviolence masterclass (including film screening) in respective cities. The initiatives were received very positively by both police officers and community members.
