Life Support Mental Health Inc. (“Life Support”), a technology company focused on developing tools to assess and triage mental wellness, is pleased to announce it’s first Mental Health Check – Public Safety Personal (“MHC-PSP”) partnership with The London Police Association (“LPA”).
PSP organizations work hard to support the mental health of their members and now Life Support has developed a unique assessment tool specifically for the first responder community. It brings together a unique battery of psychological tools to screen for common mental health challenges that include things like anxiety, depression, operational and organizational stress, burnout, trauma, and substance-misuse to name a few.
Recognizing that mental health and work-related stressors are the leading cause of injury in public safety personnel, the MHC-PSP allows organizations, like LPA to be proactive in the detection of concerns that will lead to better overall organization and operational outcomes down the road.
“LPA is a progressive association that is prioritizing their members’ mental health and wellness,” said Keith Crawford, CEO of Life Support. “We are proud to share this important partnership that shows the level of commitment the LPA has to ensuring it’s members overall health and wellness.”
Rick Robson, Executive Director of the LPA, said, “We know we need to do more for the overall health and well-being of our officers and civilians, especially their mental health. It is their number one risk factor and London is not immune. We recognize the value of the ease of an online assessment and early intervention; and Life Support Mental Health Check is an integral tool to that end.”
