Mindfulness for Police

Smiling Cops

We are a Nonprofit Organization dedicated to improving the mental health of the community


With the current chaotic times, police officers are under more stress and pressure than ever before and there is a need for an effective option to address these issues. Although psychological treatment can be effective, it is generally done after an incident and does not prevent these problems from arising. By using a mindfulness-based preventative measure with the YOG Foundation, police officers can gain the skills necessary to cope in stressful circumstances and decrease their likelihood of having difficulties in the first place.

A Vision for a More Mindful Future

Police officers currently face an average of 188 critical incidents during their careers, undergoing extreme situations such as murder, suicide, domestic violence, sexual assault, and more, leading to various issues both at home and on the job. Additionally, officers are much less likely to reveal their internal struggles, preventing them from getting the assistance they need and leading to greater problems down the line. By implementing a preventative mindfulness program with the YOG Foundation, officers can gain benefits both physically and mentally, beckoning a brighter future.
