Our guest this week is Chris Chandler-Yates! Chris has a wealth of life experiences, ranging from sailing the open seas with this family, becoming a Law Enforcement Officer in New Zealand, protecting country officials, to learning how to help others fight their burnout. Thank you Chris for everything that you do!
Fight in Progress with Susan Simons aims to discuss problems and difficulties our officers face every day from sleep deprivation, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and adrenal fatigue, to depression, isolation, physical illnesses, emotional distress, divorce and all too often suicide. Fight in Progress looks to cover these topics and discuss their solutions to help these warriors navigate these threats through education and preparation. We speak to experts, officers and their families from around the country to have hard discussions on what challenges this community faces, and what we can do to strengthen our men and women in law enforcement.
