We are committed to meeting you where you are at.
We offer a range of services, with the level of engagement being entirely up to you.
1. Virtual Support
You might want to start with free resource support available through our website. If this is you, feel free to join our newsletter. We will populate your inbox regularly with information, transition tips, motivation, and inspiration. Education and support are also available through PTSD Hero Comics. Paper copies are available through subscription, or free downloadable copies are available in a PDF version via our Landing Strong website. Get a sneak peek of our video adaptation of the comic book series by becoming a reviewer. We will also soon be featuring a resources page with links to other websites and book suggestions that we have found useful and informative.
2. Assessment of Injury, Resources, & Supports
If you are suffering the effects of workplace trauma exposure, but have not yet been assessed, this might be a good place to start. We will set you up with a registered health professional who will sit down with you to assess your needs, strengths, and resources. This is an in-depth look at what is going on for you, with a detailed report and recommendations provided to you on how to get better. We are able to use this information to double as your VAC assessment if you are a veteran or former RCMP officer and have not yet been assessed for a mental health condition.
3. Individual Counselling
Sometimes it is easiest to begin talking in a one-on-one setting. We have a team of mental health professionals ready to assist you. All you need to do is give us a call and we will work with you to determine how we can arrange for the cost of these services to be covered. Most people have insurance plans or benefit packages that cover counselling. For those who are off work, this is a great way to increase your comfort level so that you might become ready for involvement in the more intensive day treatment program.
4. Family & Support System Engagement
Recovery does not happen in isolation. We are committed to providing comprehensive supports to family members and caregivers who may be walking with you on this journey. Compassion fatigue, indirect trauma exposure, and the strain of the situation you are facing together all take a significant toll on family health. Family engagement days, children’s camps, teen stress busters, young adult wellness workshops, and caregiver respite retreats all weave together to form the fabric of our family care strategy.
5. Intensive Day Treatment Program
This is Landing Strong’s Signature program. Come join us for an intensive 12-week immersion in self-care and rehabilitation. Geared to help overcome years of training that emphasizes “mission before self,” Landing Strong changes the lens through which we see ourselves and the world. Engaging and holistic, focussing on both mental and physical recovery, Landing Strong helps those who are suffering learn to regroup, reclaim, and recalibrate their lives.
6. After Care Program
Following the intensive recovery work, we remain with you, patiently walking beside you on your path to recovery. Fridays are the day set aside for the Aftercare Program. You have the option of staying involved at the intensity that is right for you, for as long as you need it. This is the community that does not go away. Come for an hour — or come for the day — we would love to see you.
7. Community Engagement & Volunteerism
For graduates of the Landing Strong Program, there are many opportunities to stay involved through our peer support network. Lend the wisdom of experience to those in an earlier stage of their journey. Consider joining our Advisory Board, or assisting in the development of future resources through feedback surveys. Our goal is to be constantly developing and refining our services and resources. Your input and engagement are vital parts of this continuous growth.
