Patrick Fitzgibbons is a retired Police Commander who went through dark periods, then sought help at FHE Health’s Shatterproof Program for first responders, which he says saved his life. Patrick is now on a mission to help other responders overcome the same issues that he faced. In this episode, Patrick discusses the struggles he faced, and provides advice, inspiration, and hope for overcoming mental health issues, through his role as National Outreach Liaison for FHE – Health Shatterproof Program for First Responders.
Patrick shares important information about how responders, especially Law Enforcement Officers, can overcome specific obstacles, and increase their ability to manage emotions during stressful situations without turning to self-medication.
Patrick is also host of the popular Criminal Justice Evolution Podcast, which can be heard at www.cjevolution.com.
