IAFF Center for Excellence
Behavioural and Mental Health
As fire fighters, we experience tragedy, devastation and sights and sounds that most people will never encounter. In fact, we experience them often.
The OPFFA has worked with the Workers Safety and Insurance Board to relax some funding constraints for employers should a fire fighter wish to attend the Center for treatment. There is ongoing work in the area of mental health and wellness in all areas including treatment and graduated return to workplace strategies.
Please stay tuned for more information on behavioural health for fire fighters. Take a tour with the Former Minister of Health Kevin Flynn and OPFFA representatives as they toured the Centre:
