Hello, I'm Adele from Greater Manchester Police and a Blue Light Champion. I started a Mental Health Peer Support Network in GMP just over a year ago now and it is going well. I've also been researching Peer Support in the US and Norway Police as part of a WCMT Research Fellowship. So, very keen on Peer Support as you can see.

I am Jay and now a Prison Chaplain but was a Prison Officer for 20 years before that.  I am so excited by how this is moving forward and glad to be able to get involved.  I have PTSD and now freely talk about it and realise by talking and sharing I can beat it.  Glad to meet as many of you over the coming months.

Hello, my name's Ryan and I'm a Police Cadet with Cheshire Constabulary coming up to the 7 Months mark now. We've been invited along as part of the Cheshire force to take part in one of the walks taking place. Looking very forward to it!

Just one thing is there a sponsor form that we could access anywhere, if this has already been talked about could I be directed to the thread? Thanks in advance!

Hi Ryan,

Apologies for the delay. Welcome to the forum. You're now a full member following your first post. As far as sponsor forms just check with the organisers in your area to see if they have one already started. I'll check with the guys at this end..........

Yep, there's no set sponsor form available. Checkhttp://www.ourbluelight.com/sponsor
for the link to the Virgin Money Giving Page for Our BlueLight.

Hope that's answered your question?

There seems to be no interaction here, maybe people are to busy with their lives. I have contacted Mind twice and sent a generic email telling me if I felt bad to ring 999, well people I am 999 and I am the one you call so thank you for telling me to ring myself. I have been dismissed from work with severe PTSD and I have had more help and support from my dogs than I have from either work or any help groups. Over 20 years of hell has finished me off. There is so much in the news and media about PTSD and its effects and how we need to do something about it so what has been done. Its a government tick box exercise . I really hope you do something positive for the guys that are left. Goodbye
