  This clip is a trailer of a proposed documentary that is being developed in the USA.
Although very confronting,  this clip has been put on here to show the underlining message. PTSD is not a New South Wales issue, it's not an Australian issue, it's a world wide issue.
It highlights the fact that Police and Emergency Service Workers World Wide are being affected by PTSD everyday.
What we need, is to ensure our officers are provided with the education, care and support to allow early intervention and early treatment, to allow them to remain in their chosen fields.
This is the reason that Heads Up was formed.

We are proudly supported by Anytime Fitness 
Woonona, Corrimal, Fairy Meadow, Wollongong and Nowra.
