The Amazing Journey of Sgt. Mark DiBona-Part II is a continuation of Part I, and includes specifics for establishing a successful peer-to-peer support program, the critical nature of having a program, and exactly who departments should name to head up their programs. Also, Part II has detailed information for traumatic incident de-briefings. Included, again, are who should lead such de-briefings and, vitally, exactly what should be said to officers following incidents in the wake of traumatic incidents and calls. Mark has information on the things his counselor told him that made the most sense and resonated most powerfully with him in his rehabilitation. These are specific and detailed points his counselor, herself an ex-cop, made that ‘clicked with Mark’ and helped him on his ‘journey’ and comeback. He provides exact wording to use when approaching officers who may be struggling and not only that but also important things not to say or do when trying to communicate with (potentially) hurting brothers and sisters. In addition, Mark details how vitally important confidentiality is when dealing with officers’ mental health and wellness issues. He explains the critical need for mental health issues to be de-stigmatized and, rather, for there to be enlightenment and understanding when it is so vital. The amazing results of Eye Movement Desensitization are discussed. Two of the most important law enforcement health and wellness websites are brought to the viewers’ attention along with the numerous benefits both offer. And, much more in Program II, “Suicide Prevention/the Amazing Journey of Sgt. Mark DiBona”.
