Despite the advanced age in which we live, true vitality and wellness remains evasive, especially in public safety. The epidemic of police suicide seems to be growing. It is clear that depression, desperation and stress are acute problems that must be addressed. However, we must get to the root of the problem to promote true and lasting change. Our belief is that the root cause of these ailments lie in a lack of wholeness, a lack of life balance.
Positive life balance must include deliberate attention to four key components of a healthy lifestyle: spiritual health, physical health, mental health, and social/emotional health.
This class will provide students with practical tools they can use to achieve greater life balance. Greater life balance leads to hope, perspective and direction, which are key elements in combating stress, depression, and desperation.
