This was released almost a year ago and what has changed?
Did anything really change? For some Emergency Services, some improvement were seen, for others unfortunately not much has happened.
What is really needed? Do you know?
Being peers supporting other peers, we know that there are many gaps in mental health services currently offered to our First Responders and Uniform Personnel. In many cases, inpatient therapy is needed. The reality is that quick & affordable access to such treatment is lacking in Ontario and in many other provinces.
We at The Haven are ready to establish our life saving program. We are actively seeking funding.
How many more lives have to be lost before we decide to act and fill some of these gaps for those putting their lives on the line every day.
It is time to act... Please help us saving lives, one life at a time,
