About

As soon as Simon Gillard could join the Police Force, he did. He climbed the ranks and as his experience grew so did the number of cases he worked on. Working around Sydney he investigated suicides, high-profile murders, paedophile rings and even the actions of a colleague.

Simon never spoke to anyone about the traumatic things he'd seen and had to do - he reached the point where he couldn't close his eyes without images flashing through his mind - he began to suffer panic attacks and nightmares and as the cases mounted, so did the pressure. Over time Simon made four attempts on his own life.

Life Sentence is a powerful memoir of one man's experience in the Police Force and the devastating psychological impact it had on him. He has spent the last two years advocating change; trying to remove the stigma that surrounds mental illness and create awareness of PTSD.
