Ontario is investing almost $200,000 to support the Paramedic Association of Canada in developing a project to address mental health issues for paramedics. The project will develop, promote and distribute resources that’ll be used to:
- Identify psychological hazards and possible control measures
- Increase awareness to help reduce stigma and harassment
- Increase the capacity of employers to promote the psychological health and wellness of paramedics
- Prevent psychological harm from factors in the workplace.
