The Madison Police Department and the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin are teaming up to launch a pilot study focused on how mindfulness-based methods can improve police officers’ physical and mental well-being.
The pilot study, which will be launched in the fall, is a type of research that is completely new to the Center for Healthy Minds and MPD. The study will focus on helping officers overcome occupational stressors and be resilient in the face of trauma.
