Responder Resilience

The Silent Epidemic in Police Officer Mental Health | S2 E47

In April 2016, Police Officer Adam A. Meyers was involved in a critical incident when he used deadly force against someone who armed themselves with a hatchet inside a busy Department store.

In the aftermath of this incident, Meyers was plagued with trauma and guilt, descending into a spiral of depression and using alcohol, while isolating and withdrawing. This led Adam to create Stop the Threat – Stop the Stigma, a mission devoted to removing the stigmas around speaking openly about mental health within law enforcement.

Adam is courageously candid and transparent not only about his traumatic incident, but also about his spiral down and subsequent recovery as he shares about the incident that changed his career and life, and why he decided to go public about his personal and professional mental health challenges related to this critical incident.
