Wayfound Launches New Approach to Combat Mental Health Crisis
New BOS Online delivers innovative mental health resiliency programming
CALGARY, AB, Jan. 11, 2022 /CNW/ - Wayfound Mental Health Group is proud to announce BOS Online, an innovative new approach to the popular resiliency-based, science-backed BOS (Before Operational Stress) Program. Public safety employees are exposed to operational stress every day as they do their jobs, but that doesn't mean they have to accept the life challenges of that stress. The BOS Program empowers employees to take charge of their mental health by providing resiliency training and strategies to ward off the impacts of operational stress. BOS Online makes this revolutionary program widely available to frontline workers and other at-risk groups – any time, anywhere – through an easy-to-use online format.
- Available to all frontline and high-risk workers at a reasonable price.
- Easily accessible, user-friendly online platform.
- Participants complete at their own pace.
- Facilitated by three renowned experts in the field of public safety mental health.
"BOS has been delivering mental health resiliency programming to public safety personnel and it has been making a measurable difference. What we continue to hear from public safety employees is they want greater access to the program," said Dr. Megan McElheran, CEO of Wayfound Mental Health Group. This new online application allows all groups to access the programming at their own pace, at a time and format that suits them. It will carry the same scientific rigour as the original BOS Program to ensure it effectiveness. We hope BOS Online becomes a key part of the ongoing mental health strategies for all public safety personnel."
"Having delivered BOS to hundreds of frontline workers across Canada, it was a natural step to adapt the content to a more accessible format to accommodate the needs of our public safety personnel," Dr. Milena Spasojevic, BOS Chief Clinical Officer.
