PSPNET is a clinical research unit located at the University of Regina in partnership with the Canadian Institute for Public Safety Research and Treatment (CIPSRT) that delivers and conducts research on various aspects of Internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy (ICBT) for Public Safety Personnel (PSP), including first responders.
The aim of ICBT is to assist PSP including first responders in improving their mental health and wellbeing. PSPNET will provide service to all PSP who are suffering from challenges related to depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress. The program combines online learning modules with weekly support from a therapist by telephone or email. PSPNET specifically makes use of an ICBT program that was initially developed at Macquarie University in Australia and researched by the Online Therapy Unit in Saskatchewan. The ICBT program has been specifically tailored to meet the needs of PSP. Our ICBT program is called the PSP Wellbeing Course.
