NARPO Mental Health and Wellbeing Survey

NARPO is campaigning for better mental health and wellbeing support for retired police officers. We hope that our recommendations will be considered as part of the Government’s forthcoming Police Covenant.

NARPO responded to the Government’s consultation and have already received confirmation that the Police Covenant will be extended to retired police officers and staff. It’s now important that there is a formal approach to delivering mental health support both to serving and retired officers. We have been meeting with politicians to discuss our concerns at the current lack of provision and highlight the need for change.

To help inform our campaign, we are asking our members to complete the survey below. We will be using the responses to write a briefing document for parliamentarians and illustrate why improved support is needed.

Please rest assured that your responses will be anonymous. We appreciate that for some speaking about their mental health or experiences may be distressing. Please know that support is available and we would encourage you to visit https://www.narpo.org/wellbeing-factsheets/ where you can find further information, including help lines.

Together we hope to ensure that police officers and staff, both serving and retired, receive the mental health and wellbeing support that they need and deserve.
