Project Trauma Support is a new Canadian program that addresses Post Traumatic Stress and Operational Stress Injury in military personnel, veterans and first responders.
This program promotes connection and honors the warrior story and spirit by promoting time tested values and unconditional acceptance. In doing so, the program helps participants transition from post-traumatic stress to post traumatic growth.
Our team consists of mental health professionals and police and military officers who have extensive lived experience.
Our goal is to provide timely access and deliver effective help to those suffering from service related trauma. We aim to support our colleagues to minimize their distress and help them to remain active and healthy in their lives. We recognize the great contribution made by those who protect us and our mission is to empower them to continue to serve.
What makes our program so different from other programs is the fact that it addresses the moral injury component of PTSD, along with the psychological and physical concerns.
Project Trauma Support
We have a weekly peer support group meeting for those warriors suffering the effects of PTSD. The group is open to any first responders and military who are interested in healing from the impacts of trauma. We have created a safe space which encourages honesty and openness under the umbrella of anonymity and confidentiality.

Evidence shows that first responders are at least twice as likely compared to the general population to suffer PTSD.
In Canada, PTSD is increasingly recognized as a workplace Hazard. In April 2016, Ontario followed the lead of Manitoba and Alberta and passed legislation that creates a presumption that PTSD diagnosed in first responders is work related leading to faster access to resources and treatment. The government states that evidence shows that first responders are at least twice as likely compared to the general population to suffer PTSD, due to the risk of routine exposure to trauma stressors. The average person may experience an average of one traumatic incident in their lifetime. The average first responder will encounter 600 such incidents within their working life.
