The COVID-19 pandemic is a crisis affecting all Canadians. Our public safety personnel (PSP) are among the professionals serving on the front lines of this crisis nationwide. PSP, their leaders, and their families need and deserve the best support we can offer while working to help manage the pandemic impact. At CIPSRT, we are working hard to provide access to supports that will include accurate, reliable, and credible information and resources. The supports that are coming soon will be continually updated as new information becomes available.

In the interim, if you are experiencing a mental health crisis, please contact 911 immediately or go to your nearest emergency department. If you are in Saskatchewan, you may choose to access supports at www.pspnet.ca.  Across Canada the Canadian Psychological Association has also identified psychologists who are willing to donate some of their time to provide psychological services to front line health care providers (for more information, please go to: https://cpa.ca/corona-virus/psychservices/).  We have also provided lists of links to mental health resources in each province here . We will update the resource lists as needed.

Our Public Safety Personnel are crucial to keep Canadians safe, particularly during the COVID-19 crisis; as such, we need to support PSP in taking care of their physical and mental health. If you are feeling anxious, depressed, or concerned about your mental health, consider using our online self-assessment tools here. The tools can help you identify mental health areas that might need your attention.

If you have any specific questions or suggestions regarding helpful information, resources, or topics that should be addressed, please e-mail the staff at CIPSRT at: COVID19@CIPSRT-ICRTSP.ca
