Join us for a one-hour session discussing projects currently underway and designed to facilitate app-based peer support for public safety personnel and health care workers.
PeerOnCall and Beyond Silence are health interventions designed to reduce barriers to seeking mental health support by connecting PSP and healthcare workers, respectively, to private, secure peer support accessible via their mobile device. In this webinar, the researchers leading these innovative pilot projects will discuss their goals and challenges, as well as their preliminary findings in facilitating access to mental health support via app-based technologies.
