“I went with an open mind and it was life changing”
The Northern Echo reported on a police force in Durham, UK, who are partaking in a five-week mindfulness pilot program in order to improve the mental wellbeing of their officers and staff.
“I was initially sceptical about the mindfulness course. However I went with an open mind and it was life changing. I am much calmer and much more self-aware, and use some of the techniques every day.”–Sergeant Kay Howarth
“I wish I had received this when I joined the force in 1981.”–Detective Chief Inspector Mick Callan
