Following on from World Mental Health day we are delighted to launch a brand new training package 'Stress and Trauma Level 1' available digitally to individuals working in policing across England and Wales.

We have worked with Me Learning and the College of Policing to develop this digital learning course to give officers, staff and the wider policing family (such as volunteers) basic information on stress, trauma, and wellbeing.

All officers, staff and the wider policing family should be aware of the incidents or situations that can cause anxiety, depression, burnout and traumatic stress in themselves, their colleagues, and the community members who they interact with.

This course is intended for all police officers and staff particularly those in front-line roles, officer and staff supervisors and all force learning and development personnel.
