Vicpol needs to start ongoing mandatory support for members. This happens way too frequently. We know for a fact that the stigma around mental health and wellbeing is a major block for many people when engaging, or attempting to engage support, so why in such a high-stress work environment does vicpol not have the better policy? It is not good enough.
