BENOIT WELLNESS CONSULTING
Future generations of Front-Line Workers and their families will feel free, empowered, and supported in advocating for their own emotional and mental health.
We will empower, enable, and support Front-Line Workers and their families to be healthy and resilient.
We provide education, tools and guidance to support Front-Line Workers and their families to help meet their emotional and mental health needs through individual and group coaching, events and workshops, and through organizational consulting and program development.
We believe that the more resilient the family, the healthier we can be.
We believe in holding one another accountable for following through, being responsible for our actions (and inaction) and in the importance of showing up with passion, commitment and honesty.
We believe in accepting one another as you are, that is living into our vulnerable and compassionate selves
while seeking to live a life with good purpose.
We believe that to be healthy we all need and deserve human connection (emotional and physical).
We believe in a deeper level of connection where there is space for empathy and understanding without judgment.
We believe there is opportunity in bringing the greater Front-Line community together to see value in one another, build relationships and to support each other.
We believe we can make a profound difference by giving back and supporting others who do the same.
Front Line Resiliency Project
All active and retired front line personnel – including Police Officers, Fire Fighters, Emergency Medical Services Personnel, Sheriff Officers, Peace Officers, Corrections Officers, Military Personnel and Parole Officers - know the stress and mental burden that comes from the trying situations faced on the job.
For these individuals, it likely will not come as a shock that the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry reported that front line personnel live with much higher rates of mental disorders than the general population. In fact, a study conducted in 2016/2017 found that 44.5 per cent of front line personnel screen positive for clinically significant symptom clusters consistent with one or more mental disorders, a rate that is alarmingly higher than that of the general public which Statistics Canada
reported to be only 10 per cent.
This isn’t new information to those involved on the front line but that doesn’t mean it is acceptable. It is an epidemic.
The time has come to make a difference and The Front Line Resiliency Project can help.
