Counselling for trauma

Although nobody was hurt during the ordeal, events such as this can be alarming for anybody. All staff members at the Felin Puleston Booker site have been offered counselling by the company.

But other reasons given include depression and anxiety. The figures are from April 2006 to March 2009 and included 959 police force staff from the West Midlands police force, ranging from constables to operations centre offices and telephone operators.  West Midlands police explained some of these absences were for external reasons, such as bereavement, and they have a counselling section to help staff. A retired police superintendent John Mellor, […]
