Police Superintendents' Association: Peer support training September 2023

Event date 1 Sep 2023
Date: 1 Sep 2023
Time: 9:00am - 12:00pm
Duration: 3 hours

We have one peer support training course for Police Superintendents' Association (PSA) members running in September.

What does it cost?
There is no charge for this training for Home Office forces.
Who's it for?
This course is for officers holding the rank of superintendent and chief superintendent, who wish to become peer supporters. The training will enable officers to deliver timely practical support, following exposure to traumatic events in their force, or by exception and only in agreement with their force, as part of mutual aid.
How will the session be run?
The course is delivered on Microsoft Teams.
What if I miss it?
If you are unavailable to attend any of these events, future dates may become available and will be advertised via Oscar Kilo and the PSA.


This bespoke course equips superintendents and chief superintendents with skills to provide help and guidance on a range of issues to others within their ranks, acting as a critical friend to colleagues needing independent support. The training also supports self-development.
The training has been developed to help the PSA in their commitment to supporting the wellbeing of its members, who are the most senior operational leaders in the service.

This work will also help to establish a peer support for wellbeing network across the country at superintendent and chief superintendent level.

Is this course for me?

This training package is based on our OK peer support for wellbeing model which has been designed by Oscar Kilo, the National Police Wellbeing Service (NPWS) in conjunction with the PSA, specifically for those operating in emergency services environments.

The training covers the following areas:

  • what is peer support?
  • communication and supportive relationships
  • stigma and non-clinician conditions
  • mental health awareness and clinical input.

What previous delegates are saying about this course

Excellent course and one of the best I have done in a long time.

This is a tremendous programme. The necessity for wellbeing services (in particular peer support) is fundamental to understanding the trauma many of us have experienced and will help to prevent stresses becoming critical and hopefully help to heal those who have suffered and become very poorly. A brilliant day.
