TW: Trauma and Mental Health// Murder//Mental Illness//Abuse//Law Enforcement// Minority Abuse (There are some very shocking stories in this episode - please beware)

In this episode of What We're Not Talking About, I sit down with Scott Silverii and talk about trauma and mental health and how it affects the police force. In this open and honest conversation, we speak on the race war and what he experienced as Chief of Police. Scott has dedicated his life to helping men overcome the trauma and mental health issues he has witnessed in his commanding officers. He talks about his organization and what he has done to help normalize trauma and mental health in the police force.

Real Talk: This episode is honestly the most challenging episode I have ever recorded. There are some stories in this episode that made me feel like I was going to vomit. Listen with care.
