Supporting the Wellbeing of Public Safety Personnel
Issue: November 2020
From the Director's Desk 
We are excited to launch the first issue of our newsletter that will provide you with highlights of what's new with PSPNET,  information about our courses, our service outcomes, team members, outreach activities, and our research results. We encourage you to forward this newsletter far and wide and help us spread the word about PSPNET and what our clients are saying about the PSPNET service. 
As you will see below, PSPNET is now launched in Saskatchewan and Quebec in both official languages. We had a virtual event to officially launch PSPNET in Quebec on September 23rd; you can find a video of the launch event here, in French. An update was also given on PSPNET findings in Saskatchewan on September 29th. You can find a link to that talk here.
As of this end of October, we have had 108 PSP enrolled from Saskatchewan and 25 from Quebec.
In this issue, we introduce you to our team of clinicians working with clients in Quebec. 

Thank you for your interest in our services and for taking the time to read this newsletter. Please feel free to contact us if you require any additional information or have any questions. 
We look forward to hearing from you,
Dr. Heather Hadjistavropoulos
Director of PSPNET
