PSPNET is open and is not currently experiencing service delays related to COVID-19. We are thankful to all public safety personnel for their efforts during this uncertain time.
As part of the Government of Canada’s National Action Plan on Posttraumatic Stress Injuries, PSPNET is offering and evaluating Internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy, also known as ICBT, specifically tailored for current and former Public Safety Personnel (PSP), including border security agents, correctional workers, call centre operators/dispatchers, firefighters, paramedics, and police. Our ICBT program, also known as the PSP Wellbeing Course, is 8 weeks long and offered with optional weekly therapist support. The course is designed to improve depression, anxiety and posttraumatic stress injuries. PSPNET is based at the University of Regina as part of the Canadian Institute for Public Safety Research and Treatment (CIPSRT) and led by Dr. Heather Hadjistavropoulos, one of Canada’s leading scholars on ICBT.
