Event: MENTAL HEALTH – Security’s Invisible Enemy
Mental Health in the security industry is a topic that needs to be addressed. In recent years, we have seen new initiatives appear, engagement with Employee Assistance Programmes increase and modules of training introduced to help to address this growing and prominent issue. At the time, this was in reaction to the pandemic, but it is essential now that we address the invisible enemy affecting our industry colleagues.
Our event on 18th May will be bringing together security professionals alongside the #SecurityMindsMatter team and Combat Stress to begin to influence real change in our industry – spaces are limited to 100 people for this event venue so timely registration is recommended.
Did you know…
- According to a University of Plymouth study, 40% of security officers displayed symptoms of PTSD.
- According to research by the Consortium for the Prevention of Suicide, Security Officers are the third highest industry impacted by suicide.
Everyone has initiatives in place. Everyone has amazing ideas. But the time for working siloed is over – it’s time to come together and let’s remove the stigma, together! Talking is good, but now it is time for collective action!
The team have secured leading experts in this area to educate and inform and help us to take the next step in improving mental health in the security sector. These include the Lead Research Occupational Therapist from Combat Stress, and leading figures from Security Minds Matter – introduced by Corps Security’s CEO and finalising with a Q&A panel session. Full schedule of events will follow soon.
