Nick Wilson

http://njwresilientconsulting.org/

Nick Wilson was a police officer for 13 years in Southern California before medically retiring due to injuries sustained on the job. He was a SWAT Team Operator, Field Training Officer, led many long-term investigations as a detective in the Special Investigations Unit, and worked in task force environments with the Department of Homeland Security investigating terrorism activities. Due to excessive exposure to trauma, Nick found himself with a PTSI diagnosis which led to self-medicating to sleep, a DUI, a trauma retreat and rehabilitation. Nick founded a non-profit which supports first responder mental health and speaks around the country in an effort to end silent suffering and stigmas which have plagued the law enforcement community, resulting in more law enforcement deaths by suicide than in the line of duty over the last 4 years.
