Counseling Helps Ill. Department Cope With LODD

Hinsdale Deputy Chief Mark Johnson had collapsed and died while training in the department's fitness room on Sept. 20.


Kenny spoke to Johnson's wife just days after his death and she said her son was having a tough time with it. He gave her the name of a counselor and he said that after he went she said it really helped him.

"I think you need to leave a process in place for the future," he said. "For some people, it won't be they make a connection to his death. It could be six months down the line, it could be a year," he said. "You have to make it acceptable that it's OK to cope with it."
