Responder Resilience

Shatterproof: A Journey of Courage, Inspiration and Hope | S2 E45

Patrick Fitzgibbons is a retired Police Commander who went through dark periods, then sought help at FHEHealth’s Shatterproof Program for first responders, which he says saved his life. Patrick is now on a mission to help other responders navigate the same issues that he faced. In this episode, Patrick discusses the struggles he experienced, and provides advice, inspiration, and hope for overcoming mental health issues, through his role as National Outreach Liaison for the 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
