Families Matter Research Group Interactive Series: PSP Family Support – How can organizations get involved?
Wednesday 14 February 2024
11:00 am CST (12:00 pm EST)
Families of Public Safety Personnel (PSP) serve alongside their loved ones and experience unique challenges due to these high-risk professions. Public safety organizations have begun to address these unique challenges and have successfully implemented some family-forward initiatives. We have sought out public safety organizations that have made efforts in these initiatives and looked to consolidate the collective wisdom on where and how to start, and what seems to be working. We are excited to share some preliminary findings about initiatives that originate from both rural and urban areas across Canada and from a variety of public safety sectors.
As this is an open event and all are welcome, please note, registration is required. Information gathered from this event will play a central role in growing a network that will serve and support PSP families across Canada. Following the event, attendees will be asked to complete a survey to inform the format, frequency, and themes of future PSP Families Network activities.
We would like to acknowledge the Canadian Institutes of Health Research for funding this research, along with those who have participated in the study to date.
