What support is available?


Counselling is a talking therapy that involves a trained therapist listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues.

You'll be encouraged to talk confidentially about your feelings and emotions with a trained therapist, who'll listen and support you without judging or criticising.

In-patient care

Funding is available to police forces where a serving police officer, staff, or volunteer requires in-patient mental health care. We do not provide direct funding to individuals, but rather cover the costs of the treatment where deemed clinically appropriate.

This includes when a police employee has been sectioned, or is about to be sectioned.

Confidential careline

We provide access to an independent, confidential, and accessible careline for you to call for advice and support. Staffed by trained experts in practical and emotional wellbeing, anything you discuss with the confidential careline stays confidential.
