Boots On The Ground Peer Support For First Responders

Mental Health, Anonymous Peer Support

Some things aren’t just « part of the job. »
Most people have no idea what a First Responder goes through, though they try. Even among our own, it can be hard to talk about « work ».
That’s why we started Boots On The Ground. It’s an anonymous Ontario-based helpline where First Responders can talk to someone who’s been through it. We’re not therapists. We’re here to listen. No call display. No judgment.
We’re here to be your first call, when you’re ready.
