Event description
Road to Mental Readiness (R2MR): Train the Trainer for Public Safety Personnel

About this Event

The Road to Mental Readiness (R2MR) program was created by the Department of National Defence (DND) to build awareness of mental illness and operational stress injuries (OSIs) through education, to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness, and to increase understanding and support for these conditions. The goal of R2MR is to improve short term performance and long term mental health outcomes. Research has shown that R2MR may provide a benefit to public service personnel (PSP).

To attend this course you must be a public safety personnel or directly support a public safety organization. PSP refers to people who ensure the safety and security of Canadians and includes:

  • police and/or RCMP
  • volunteer or career firefighters
  • paramedics, EMT
  • correctional employees (provincial or federal)
  • border services personnel
  • operational and intelligence personnel
  • search and rescue personnel
  • Indigenous emergency managers
  • dispatch and communications personnel.

It is of the utmost importance to select the right individuals to be instructors, as the challenge in mental health training is not only what is being taught, but equally important is who teaches it. CIPSRT will contact you to evaluate your appropriateness and ensure you meet the criteria before your enrolment will be confirmed.

CIPSRT will be holding a train the trainer program in partnership with the Vancouver Police Department. This training opportunity will provide participants R2MR Trainer Level II. The training will take place from Monday, December, 9 to Friday, December, 13 from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm each day.

CIPSRT will provide wellness break snacks, beverages, and coffee.

Parking information will be provided to participants before the event.
