Northern Lakes


NAMI Northern Lakes has been involved with the presentation of Crisis Intervention Team training for Northwoods law enforcement for the past two years. This 40-hour training gives officers a great deal of information about mental health and mental illness, as well as giving them tools to help defuse mental health crisis situations without an arrest or injury. But part of the class also deals with mental health among officers. They have one of the most stressful jobs in our society. They routinely view traumatic events. As the officers have said during their training, they usually see the rest of us on our absolutely worst day. And they see that every day. This story touches on the universal truth that we ask a great deal of our law enforcement professionals, from the perspective of one very traumatic day in Central Wisconsin.
