Member Toolkit

The PAO has maintained a strong stand that Ontario’s sworn and civilian police personnel require critical resources to combat Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Operational Stress Injuries (OSIs) that may develop based on what they see and hear on the job

Everyone Needs Backup is focused on opening up conversations and raising awareness within the membership about the prevalence of these debilitating issues in our ranks, and connecting those experiencing mental health challenges with support resources.

Share the following documents with your local personnel and colleagues. Make sure every single police member knows they are not alone.
