PSPNET is an online resource wherein first responders and other public safety personnel can access internet-based mental health services from a clinician, as well as educational resources and courses intended to improve their wellbeing and understanding of various commonly experienced symptoms (e.g., depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder).
The aim of Internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy (ICBT) is to assist PSP, including first responders, in improving their mental health and well-being. 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 Well-being Course.
