Group Description

Welcome to our self help forum !

This site has been created by Idriss Stelley Foundation.

as a mean of support and resources for people affected with Post Taumatic Stress Syndrome as a result of Law Enforcement Violence.

Some of us had a pre-existing PTSD condition prior to police assaut, and our symptoms are resurging in full force
Others developped PTSD directly after a police assult, and many of us are grieving relatives of Loved ones killed or disabled by Police.

The idea of a Self Help Group for PTSD Survivors is innovative, and needed since many of us have tried psychotherapy, desensitization, anti depressants, spiritual counseling that has not decreased the intensity of our daily experience.

After an extensive search, we found out that while there is extensive support for Law Enforcement Officers suffering from PTSD after they shot and killed a "suspect". there is practically no litterature on PTSD survivors of police Violence (See "files" and "links" on this site).

Please share your thoughts, expeiences, ways you have found helpful (or not) to manage your symptoms, and archive any articles/research you find on the issue
(please read recount of my own PTSD experience under "messages")

Let's Serve and Protect Each Other !
