**This episode is for mature audiences and will include explicit content to include domestic violence, suicide, and child abuse.**
On today's episode, I speak with Mustafa Browne, an old friend and partner, about life before, during and after law enforcement and how he was affected by my marriage and after separating from my ex-husband.
Mustafa was diagnosed with an Adjustment Disorder in his late 20s. He is an Air Force Veteran and worked as military police for three years and as a K9 handler for six years before being medically separated. He is a former law enforcement officer and currently owns his own Veteran owned franchise.
We will also share bits and pieces of our experiences with mental health as a police officer in the military and civilian sector.

Hi, my name is Melianne Hernandez, a survivor of Domestic Violence, Suicidal Ideations, and Mental Health illnesses (PTSD, Mania, Depression and Anxiety).
A United States Marine Corps veteran and a former Law Enforcement Officer.
Yet, none of that training prepared me for what would occur within 2016-2018.
Follow me on my Journey of recovery and healing and hopefully we can stand by each other a stronger version of what we were.
Survival Perspectives is not only about my personal journey but a space where others can share their story and where they are in their current path of survival, but also a place where I welcome those who were there at the beginning and helped me find myself. My new self.
Keep on surviving in this crazy world we live in.
