Counseling and confidentiality: What officers need to know
The decision to seek mental health counseling can be a difficult one. Issues of pride can be an obstacle, particularly for first responders, because the appearance of weakness or being ineffective in their problem-solving abilities may illicit feelings of shame or inadequacy. This problem is not uncommon. The aversion to feelings of vulnerability hinders many people from getting professional help — it can be difficult to admit problems out loud to another person.
