Changing Minds: Advancing the Policy Landscape Around the Mental Health of Public Safety Personnel


It is our pleasure to present “Changing Minds: Advancing the policy landscape around the mental health of public safety personnel”. This report takes stock of significant national and federal policy and initiatives that were put in place over the last decade. It highlights the progress we have made and the challenges that remain before us.


In the report you will find a description of the major federal initiatives as we see them and where they position the fire sector. It will also speak to where we believe Canada needs to go in first responder mental health as next steps. We caution the reader that this is a report about policy initiatives, not about services, treatments or supports available to the front line. Our hope is that these policy initiatives will translate as quickly and as powerfully as possible.


We hope you will find this report interesting. Our thanks to the members of the CAFC Mental HealthCommittee and to Ms. Lisa Lefebvre for their assistance with this report, and to our reviewers for their helpful comments on this paper. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact CAFC’sExecutive Director, Dr. Tina Saryeddine, at


Thank you for your support of our sector. We look forward to discussing these issues further together.
