Policing is one of the most challenging careers in Canada. When you first join policing, you may not have expected the full impact your experiences would have on your mental health. Those life threatening calls, stressful and dangerous situations, handling of dead bodies, civilian rescues, next of kin notifications, and dealing with the loss of a colleague are only some of the struggles you may have faced. Before you know it, your life has changed because of your service. The demands of work, home, and society pile on and it is difficult to make sense out of your life.
We provide full mental health assessments so you can understand yourself better. We help you complete a VAC psychological form and assessment, which will acknowledge the trauma you have experienced due to your service to Canada. The VAC psychological is compensation for how your life has changed since starting policing and identifying how your mental health has deteriorated.
