City Council committee examining CPD responses to officer mental health, PTSD

CHICAGO — Facing a mental health crisis, Chicago Police and the City Council are exploring alternative treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder.

The doctor at the forefront of one of those treatments is Dr. Eugene Lipov with the Stella Center, who explained the impact of his work to the committees on health and human relations and public safety.

“What I’m trying to do is reduce the misery associated with PTSD,” Lipov said.
