We serve and protect those who serve and protect us.

The Mental Health Check was designed to assess a wide-range of mental health concerns that are commonly found within the first responder community.

What is the Mental Health Check?

The Mental Health Check (MHC) assessment brings together a unique battery of psychological tools to screen for common mental health challenges that we observed in first responder personnel. This includes things like anxiety, depression, operational and organizational stress, burnout, trauma, and substance-misuse to name a few.

The measures included in the Mental Health Check assessment have been screened by our clinical advisory team and numerous subject matter experts. Each measure is either specifically endorsed by the American Psychiatric Association or supported by external research evidence.

The Mental Health Check assessment can be accessed directly through our website, or your association's customized link. First responders can complete the Mental Health Check assessment from the comfort and privacy of their home. Once complete, the findings are debriefed with the member by a qualified mental health professional either virtually or over the phone.

If the findings indicate a need for ongoing support, a list of qualified mental health professionals that meet the public safety personnel's specific and unique needs will be generated and shared to the member for referral. This smooth, streamlined process allows for the communication of results and subsequent referral, should it be necessary, in a quick and efficient manner.

Why your organization has adopted the MHC?

First responder members and support organizations have worked tirelessly to support the mental health of their members. Recognizing that mental health and work-related stressors are the leading cause of injury in public safety personnel, the MHC allows organizations to be proactive in the detection of concerns and will lead to better overall organization and operational outcomes down the road.

So, how does it work?
