MEDIA RELEASE Wounded Warriors Canada

As a mental health service provider, Wounded Warriors offers a range of clinically facilitated programs that have been specifically developed to support the unique needs of veterans, first responders and their families. Their programs support individuals, couples, spouses, surviving spouses, and children of those who serve or have served our country. The organization also provides leading-edge trauma-informed workplace training geared towards helping make trauma exposure management a new professional standard for uniformed service personnel.

“The mental health and well-being of our members is integral to our organization,” says Police Chief Steve Williams. “We have made a commitment to our sworn and civilian members that we will provide the supports they need to ensure they never have to struggle alone. This partnership with Wounded Warriors Canada will serve as an additional layer of mental health support for our members.”

As part of this partnership, Wounded Warriors Canada will be delivering the Before Operational Stress (BOS) program to a number of London Police Service members. The BOS program brings together cutting-edge clinical approaches with recognized scientific expertise to support psychological health and wellness of public safety personnel over the course of their operational careers.

“Given the complexities of operational stress injuries, we know that no single organization will ever be the 100% solution when it comes to the mental health and wellness of its members and their families,” says Scott Maxwell, Executive Director of Wounded Warriors Canada. “This is why partnerships are vital. Together, we are working to break down barriers to accessing culturally appropriate mental health care while reducing stigma for those who keep our communities safe. We look forward to working with the team at LPS in the months and years to come.”
