With funding from the provincial and federal governments, a Toronto health-care facility is set to build and run a rehabilitation centre dedicated to treating first responders and medical personnel for post-traumatic stress injuries (PTSI).
The Runnymede Healthcare Centre detailed its plans Thursday afternoon alongside politicians from three levels of government, fire chiefs and police chiefs.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced $1 million in funding for Runnymede Health Centre’s PTSI treatment and wellness program, designed specifically for the unique needs of first responders.
He said this is the first facility of its kind in Canada.
“We must recognize their experiences and jobs require specialized treatment,” said the premier.
