As part of the Government of Canada’s National Action Plan on Posttraumatic Stress Injuries, PSPNET was created to deliver and evaluate Internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy, also known as ICBT, tailored specifically to benefit Public Safety Personnel (PSP). ICBT is designed to improve depression, anxiety and posttraumatic stress injuries.
