Canadian IAFF members seeking behavioural health treatment information now have easier access to the dedicated services and preferred rates offered by IAFF partner EHN Canada.

The dedicated landing page provides detailed information about EHN’s trauma-focused behavioural health services for IAFF members, including the types of challenges treated and options for treatment.

EHN Canada has a network of accredited facilities in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, and Nova Scotia and specialises in treating all types of behavioural health concerns, including depression, anxiety, trauma, and PTSD, and is the leader in evidence-based behavioural health treatment in Canada.

IAFF members will also have priority access to addiction and behavioural health programming available across the EHN network, which serves general populations.

IAFF General President Edward Kelly said he is proud of the IAFF’s partnership with EHN Canada and pleased to see the landing page go live as an additional resource for members who may be struggling with post-traumatic stress, addiction, and related issues.

He said: “EHN Canada’s new website for IAFF members puts a lot of important information about behavioural health resources at their fingertips, which they can access confidentially 24/7 from the comfort and privacy of their homes.

“Our jobs are dangerous and stressful, which is why behavioural health resources are so important Canadian members struggling with behavioural health and addiction need to know they’re not alone, and there’s no shame in reaching out for help.”

EHN Canada’s Chair and CEO, Joe Manget, added that the landing page was a key step in ensuring Canadian IAFF members can access behavioural health treatment options as quickly and easily as possible: “Part of our purpose as a company is to ensure that all Canadians have access to high-quality behavioural healthcare, which means we have to continually remove barriers and ensure our services are easy to find and use,” he said. “We encourage all members to take a look at the services we offer and reach out if they are in need of help.”
