An early-intervention training program developed for public safety personnel to learn how to assist and support their peers or individuals they encounter in the field who may be experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge.
Public safety professionals encounter high levels of stress, trauma and critical incidents, which can take a toll on mental health.
