August 23, 2019, Toronto – The Haven is set to become Ontario’s first occupational-specific therapy house for first responders.

The Haven, supported by its Quebec partner, La Vigile, aims to fill the gaps in the current mental health resources available in the province. The organization will be a medically supervised treatment centre with a mission to provide occupational- specific resources. Treatments will range from outpatient services of psychologists, to treatment of comorbid mental health issues of addictions, anxiety, depression, PTSD and operational stress injury on an inpatient basis.

Contributing association members will have unlimited access to the centre without having to go through Ontario’s workplace compensation board. The Haven is now looking for a location in the Greater Toronto Area.
