46 POLICEASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA It has been readily apparent that mood disorders (anxiety/depression) are becoming the social norm. As a 37 year veteran Emergency/General Physician I would like to thank the officers of N.S. Policing services for their educating, interventions and the bringing to Emergency services those individuals critically stricken by these disorders. Your compassion and dedication to this role should never go unnoticed by the general public in a present day society that seems more critical than supportive of your policing role. G. Brian Ferguson, M.D. Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre THANK YOU
