Spouse or Significant Other Wellbeing Course: Supporting Public Safety Personnel Families

Public Safety Personnel (PSP) do incredibly important work in ensuring the safety and security of Canadians, but these careers can affect their wellbeing. PSP are diverse, encompassing many professions, such as first responders (paramedics, firefighters, police), correctional workers, search and rescue personnel, and more. What their work often shares, however, is frequent exposure to stress and trauma, in addition to complex, non-standard working hours and other occupational stressors (e.g., public scrutiny). What has become increasingly clear is that this work doesn’t just affect their own wellbeing but that of their families as well.
