Resilient MindsTM is an evidence-informed, peer-to-peer, skill-building program designed by and for career and volunteer fire fighters across Canada to develop strategies to mitigate and better manage occupational stress and enhance personal resilience, resulting in informed and healthier teams. Resilient Minds training is meant to increase the ability to recognize the effects of psychological stress and trauma in themselves and their peers; communicate with peers who may be struggling; respond promptly, safely, and appropriately to distressed citizens; and apply personal strategies for managing stress, mitigating trauma, and boosting resilience.
