Throughout our various experiences (both professional & personal), we've realized that there are many gaps in services currently being offered when it comes to mental health, especially for our heroes putting their lives on the line. We have decided to fill some of these gaps with our very unique approach.
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 is to offer leading edge, evidence-based mental health services with accelerated access for First Responders and Uniform Personnel on an inpatient/outpatient basis.
Our initial focus will be to provide services in two or three facilities in Ontario. Over time we expect to have facilities to support service delivery across Canada.
Our services will be leading-edge and constantly evolving through the adoption of known best practices and the support of new research programs to advance innovation in the field.
