OneInFour wall at Conference
To mark the launch of our £3 million OneInFour Fund we asked delegates to add their experiences of mental health to our OneInFour wall at the Police Federation Conference in Bournemouth last week.
We have pledged £3 million over three years to help forces support those who suffer psychological harm as a result of their policing role. The fund was announced in response to the interim results from our Injury on Duty survey
and has been named the OneInFour Fund because, according to the Health Survey for England, that’s the number of adults who will be diagnosed with a mental illness at some stage during their lives.
During the Conference delegates were asked to share their (or their colleagues') experience of mental health, or to answer the question 'why MUST police mental health be a priority?'
