Confidential, encouraging support from peers who understand and won’t judge. Daily life can be stressful and can have an effect on your well-being, especially in a high stress career field. You are not alone. In 2019, the Riley County Police Department established a 13-member Peer Support Team represented by all the divisions within the Department to help ensure we are meeting our own mental health needs. Peer support may be contacted for a variety of reasons including but not limited to financial concerns, marital issues, family concerns, substance abuse, traumatic events, suicide or emotional and physiological issues. Peers and colleagues may have a better understanding of what you’re going through more than others.
