The Backup Buddy Police Support app is for police officers and staff of British Transport Police, designed to help with mental health issues.
The App covers a range of problems faced by officers and staff in the Police service, such as anxiety, stress, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), depression, eating disorders, self-harm and more. It gives practical advice and support on how officers can maintain good mental health, spot warning signs for themselves and others, plus advice on how to get help for themselves and colleagues.
There are specific pathways mapped for help and support within British Transport Police, including 24hr support for officers and staff.
The App also includes officers' own stories which users can relate to, leading to feeling less isolated.
General mental health tips are provided, as well as a directory of Useful Contacts and we have a facility to share your story - to help reduce the stigma in others.
