National Survey on Mental Disorder Symptoms Among Public Safety Personnel in Canada
with Dr. Nick Carleton, University of Regina & Steve Palmer, Executive Director, Collaborative Centre for Justice and Safety, University of Regina
October 27, 2017 | 12:00pm Eastern
Mental Disorder Symptoms Among Public Safety Personnel in Canada
Canadian public safety personnel (PSP; e.g., correctional workers, dispatchers, firefighters, paramedics, police officers) are exposed to potentially traumatic events as a function of their work. Such exposures contribute to the risk of developing clinically significant symptoms related to mental disorders. The current study was designed to provide estimates of mental disorder symptom frequencies and severities for Canadian PSP.
Who Should Attend
- Members of Police Governance Agencies
- Police Executives
- Members of Police Agencies
- Police Researchers
- Policy Developers
- We conducted a self-report assessment of mental disorder symptoms in a large, diverse sample of public safety personnel
- Approximately 44.5% screened positive for one or more mental disorders based on self-report; however, without interviews we cannot speak to diagnostic rates
- There were several significant differences between groups with respect to the frequencies of positive screenings
- The results suggest public safety personnel may experience substantial difficulties with mental health ad underscore the need for a rigorous epidemiological study and category-specific solutions
