Mental Health Treatments for First Responders

Being the first on the scene can take a toll on your mental wellbeing. We offer treatment programs tailored to the distinct needs of first responders.

Your Struggle

As a first responder, you’ve witnessed things that most people couldn’t imagine. The trauma you’ve experienced on the job makes you vulnerable to life-altering struggles with addiction, depression, and anxiety. Despite struggling with trauma, you may be expected to go back to work and face your triggers every day.

Unfortunately, finding the right mental health treatments can be challenging for first responders. Most rehabilitation programs take a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment that fails to address your distinct circumstances.

How We Help

EHN Canada offers mental health treatments created exclusively for first responders. We take the challenges of your line of work into consideration to help you develop the tools you need to lay the groundwork for a long and healthy life. 

On your journey you’re guided by a multiprofessional team of medical experts who have led other EMTs, law enforcement officers, paramedics, and firefighters towards success. We use evidence-based methods, like prolonged exposure therapy (PET) and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), to help you conquer trauma, addiction, and accompanying concerns. 

While in treatment, you join a community of fellow first responders and military service members who understand what you’re going through. You learn and grow alongside your tight-knit cohort.

What We Treat

We’re proud to offer several mental health treatment programs that are designed especially for first responders.
