Episode 23: Story of Compassion Fatigue.
*This episode contains graphic language.* In this episode, Cst. Mike Willford of the Abbotsford Police Department joins the podcast to share his personal story on compassion fatigue.
Mike and Chief Neil Dubord discuss Mike’s experience of being the ‘helper’, but not seeking help for himself and how that led to physical symptoms he could not ignore.
His story is a unique but common one in the sense that there was no one, single event that stood out or led to his symptoms; it was the small incidents that added up over time.
