PUBLIC SAFETY PERSONNEL
Mindfulness is a skill that promotes overall well-being and helps to reduce, and more effectively manage, the stress of our modern busy lives. Mindfulness Training increases our capacity for attentiveness and presence and generally promotes a more open, relaxed, flexible, and less reactive state of mind.

This program is so important to the wellbeing of all our staff and will also benefit their families by encouraging great mental health and resiliency.
