This website was developed as a collaborative effort by a committed Steering Committee of First Responders, leaders, organized labour, WCB Nova Scotia, and Government representatives. The goal of the Committee and this website, is to eliminate the stigma that surrounds traumatic stress injuries, and provide tools and resources that help First Responders protect their mental health throughout their careers.
