Police officers can access a range of mental health services through Occupational Health. While this is a workplace service that is not designed for those who have left the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), the MPS direct retired officers to their GP, charities that provide support, counselling, 24hr crisis lines, recovery cafes and specialist financial services.
