SSS Joins ‘National Suicide Prevention Alliance’ to help prevent suicides amongst military and emergency service personnel

Client Feedback from Steve (Police Officer) Nottingham. #PTSD

‘I have attended all manner of incidents, but I recently dealt with an incident that caused me issues.I had constant reminders of it and it started to interfere with my private and work life.I had a vision in my head 24hrs a day that i just couldn’t get rid of. I considered the GP, asking for help, and thought about going off sick. I broke down at work and sought help internally and was directed to Social Support Systems.After a quick online questionnaire i was asked to phone and make an appointment.The day arrived and i didn’t know what to expect, but after three hours with my facilitator I no longer feel or suffer the issues I did, and life is back on track.An unexpectedly simple process provided relief for me – Much quicker than a GP visit and then onward referral. I really can’t praise or thank them enough.’
