Unique Treatment...

What is The Haven?

At The Haven, we are dedicated to filling the gaps in mental health services for Public Safety Personnel, Military Members, and their Families. Our unique approach is grounded in a deep understanding of the occupational and organizational challenges experienced by these individuals.  Through our innovative programming and a community-oriented perspective, we provide targeted support that addresses not just the symptoms but the whole person. We are dedicated to our mission of empowering peers, ensuring that every individual has the necessary tools and community support to maintain and enhance their wellness.

 

Approaching mental health wellness with the understanding of the impact of organizational stressors. Traditionally, we have approached mental health wellness with the understanding of operational injuries. Powerful literature by Dr. Carelton, N. (2021) has shown that organizational injuries can have a significant impact regardless of the operational experience. 

What does this mean?

That means we at The Haven understand that organizational stressors, such as short staffing, shift work, healthy processing of operational pieces, organizational culture, leadership consistency, are directly related to your mental wellness. With this understanding, our holistic approach includes all of these dynamics and more.

Our Mission

Providing mental health wellness care, treatment and resources exclusive to our First Responders, Public Safety Personnel, Military and their Families. Caring for those who service and protect us so they are constructive family members and sound contributors to their communities, healthy, happy and well.

Our Vision

Our vision is to offer cutting-edge, evidence-based mental health services with accelerated access for First Responders and Uniform Personnel on both an inpatient and outpatient basis.

Initially, we will focus on providing services at two or three facilities in Ontario. Over time, we anticipate expanding our facilities to support service delivery across Canada.

Our services will be cutting-edge and continuously evolving through the adoption of established best practices and the support of new research programs to drive innovation in the field.

The Haven will represent a unique partnership among governments, academia, the private sector, and First Responders and Uniform Personnel.
