Announcing the expansion of PSPNET to Quebec (September 2020)

Help is on its way for public safety personnel (PSP) in Quebec who are experiencing mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and stress disorders due to symptoms of posttraumatic stress injuries (PTSI).

The Canadian Institute for Public Safety Research and Treatment (CIPSRT) at the University of Regina has expanded the Public Safety Personnel Internet-delivered Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (ICBT) program, known as PSPNET, to provide online therapy in both official languages (English and French) to PSP living in Quebec.

A strong team of University of Regina researchers and clinicians, led by Dr. Heather Hadjistavropoulos, one of Canada’s leading scholars in ICBT, is behind this innovative way of providing therapy to tackle some of the health issues facing public safety personnel and their families.
