First responders are selfless heroes of Ontario, that is why @ONSafety continues to advocate for their mental health. I reiterated this message in my meetings with great non-profit organizations that focus on #mentalhealth: @BadgeLifeCanada, @BootsOTGround, @WoundWarriorCA

Hope – Growth – Recovery
Badge of Life Canada Executive Director Laura Kloosterman had the opportunity to meet with Michael Kerzner to discuss the importance of positive mental health for Canadian Public Safety personnel and the need to work together through networking and collaboration to achieve post-traumatic growth. Badge of Life Canada plays a key role in new approaches through collaboration and networking.
Canadian Public Safety personnel and their families are never on this journey alone. Organizations like Badge of Life Canada are here to be a part of that journey with a pro-active approach to mental wellness. We need to continue the dialogue in order to transform the culture. We are always open to positive comments and suggestions. You can reach us on our website at BadgeofLifeCanada.org.
