FamilyFirstResponder.ca has launched! Thank you for visiting.
We are designing and evaluating a support program for partners of first responders. This program will aim to support and strengthen the first responder partners’ own mental health and resilience, which may in turn, support and strengthen the mental health of the first responder and their family.
We are recruiting spouses/partners of first responders to take part in a pilot study to test our program and provide us with feedback. Participant feedback will help us refine the FFR program and make it most helpful for partners of first responders across Canada. The pilot program will include five group sessions across five consecutive weeks (May to June 2022). Participants will be asked to complete questionnaires pre-program, after each session, post-program, and one month after the last session.
