This week, Chief Neil Dubord is joined by Mark Bouchard. Mark first joined the Delta Police Department in 2007 and in 2020, Mark left the Delta Police to join the RCMP. Currently, he is serving on RCMP’s North District Emergency Response Team that he has been a part of since March 2021.
In this episode, Mark shares some of the life-changing experiences he has gone through throughout his career from patrol to ERT. He candidly speaks on how these experiences have impacted his mental health, what he has done to recover, and his advice to both leaders and first responders on what they can do to support others going through similar experiences or recover from these difficult experiences themselves.
Mark is working on a book about his experience and has a website with helpful resources for first responders. Check out Mark's website at https://markbouchard.ca/
