The Cornwall Police Service Partners with Wounded Warriors Canada

New partnership provides an added layer of mental health support for police employees and their families

CORNWALL, ON – The Cornwall Police Service (CPS) is proud to announce the signing of a new partnership agreement with Wounded Warriors Canada (WWC), a national mental health charity that provides mental health programs to support Veterans, First Responders and their families. Under the agreement, the CPS will share resources and identify or refer their members in need of mental health support to the programs offered by Wounded Warriors Canada.

“The health and wellbeing of our employees is a major priority of the CPS,” said Chief of Police, Danny Aikman. “Our people are our greatest assets, who work endlessly to help others, and these employees deserve to have the same supports available to assist them when they are in need. This partnership will enable the CPS to provide our employees with the appropriate supports for any mental health challenges they or their families may face.”

First Responders are highly trained and skilled professionals who, due to the nature of their work, often face challenging situations that test their physical or mental health and safety. Wounded Warriors Canada’s innovative approach to mental health combines clinical best practices and evidence-informed care to create an environment of compassion, hope and resiliency for participants.

“This partnership recognizes that no single organization can do it all when it comes to mental health support,” says Scott Maxwell, Executive Director of Wounded Warriors Canada. “When a First Responder is struggling, what matters is that the member and their family knows that we are in this together – working to ensure they receive the help they so rightly deserve. We look forward to working with Cornwall Police Service in the months and years ahead.”
