STAND T.A.L.L. is now involved with assisting area law enforcement departments that have or wish to start a Peer Support Groups. We can provide guidance and financial support to assist area departments in doing this, from set-up to bringing in outside professionals.
THE CONCEPT – Law enforcement personnel are never alone. They are brothers and sisters, both locally, regionally and from across the state. As a Peer Support Group, they come together to form a support network for the mental and physical health of their fellow officers with trained assistance. They’ve been where you are, and understand your battles. They’re here to answer your call.
No member of law enforcement is the same, or has the same story, but together they’ve battled everything. Peer groups are made up of volunteers that have walked your walk and are eager to help. They're here for you if and when you're ready to talk to someone and we encourage everyone to reach out for assistance. Here are some of the issues that peer group address:
*Drug Abuse – *Anxiety - *Sadness/Depression
*Problematic Drinking - *Trouble Sleeping/Insomnia - *PTSD
INDIVIDUAL PEER SUPPORT - Whether you are on active duty or retired, peer groups match you with a man or woman of LE who has walked in your shoes. You can talk to someone who knows your experiences firsthand.
IMMEDIATE GROUP NEEDS - Sometimes a whole shift or department is reacting to an event. This concept provides trained local and area peer specialists that can come out usually within 48-96 hours who can help lead a healthy discussion, which is the first step towards healing.
DEPARTMENT OUTREACH PRESENTATIONS – STAND T.A.L.L. can provide trained professionals who can come to you to talk about what Law Enforcement Peer Support Group is all about and how it benefits the professionals of law enforcement.
FAMILY OUTREACH PRESENTATIONS - Your loved ones are on this journey as well. We can help you plan and facilitate an event that includes the families of law enforcement.
