It’s safe to say, society as a whole has experienced heightened anxiety over the last year. We have collectively been through a pandemic, watched riots & protests break out, and dealt with a tense political scene. It can take a toll on anyone’s mental health and that includes security personnel. Behavioral psychologist Michael Corcoran says now more than ever, it’s a good idea to check in with not only the people providing security but also the employers hiring them. The goal is to make sure everyone is in a mentally healthy space to be on point.
Corcoran reminds us of the old adage, proper preparation prevents poor performance. It is imperative security companies and employers of security personnel provide proper training.
