Virtual Town Hall: Spotlight on Training: Learn More about R2MR
Date & Time: August 18, 2022 11:00 CST (1:00 pm EDT)
The Road to Mental Readiness (R2MR) program was created by the Department of National Defense (DND) to build awareness of mental illness and operational stress injuries (OSIs) through education. The goal of R2MR is to improve short-term performance and long-term mental health outcomes in Public Safety Personnel (PSP), as well as provide key resiliency and mental toughness skills. Research has shown that R2MR benefits Public Safety Personnel (PSP) in terms of short-term psychological functioning, mitigating long-term mental health problems, resiliency training, and increasing positive attitudes toward mental health and help-seeking.
CIPSRT has received funding via the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) to develop Training and Development programming for PSP. This includes launching a Train the Trainer program for R2MR, new online initiatives for R2MR and other training programming. Learn more about the R2MR training program and how it can be used, resources available and the new learning being developed.
