Richard Gettings

I served within the UK Merchant Navy between 1985-87 and then became a career police officer, in both the Royal Hong Kong Police (1988-91) and UK (South Yorkshire Police 1993-2012). I was injured on duty, diagnosed with PTSD and forced to take medical retirement. I formed the Daparian Foundation as a way of researching PTSD, from the veteran and police perspective, and improving the lives of those diagnosed with PTSD from these communities through lived experience research. The work and development of the Daparian Foundation continues.
