MOSAIC DONATES $40,000 TO WOUNDED WARRIORS CANADA TO SUPPORT SASKATCHEWAN FIRST RESPONDERS
REGINA – Safety is paramount at Mosaic. They are committed to a safe workplace and ensuring their employees return home safe each day. Today, Mosaic made a $40,000 contribution to Wounded Warriors Canada to provide their proactive operational stress training program, Before Operational Stress (BOS), to Mosaic Employee Response Team (ERT) members – many of whom are also First Responders in Saskatchewan.
Sarah Fedorchuk, Vice President, Public Affairs and Government Relations at Mosaic, commented, “Emergencies can be unnerving and stressful and even traumatic, especially if someone you know is involved like a co-worker or neighbour. We are proud to partner with Wounded Warriors Canada who has an impressive track record of supporting First Responders in our country. The BOS program will enhance our ERT members’ resiliency skills which will help prepare them for difficult situations at work and at home in their communities.”
Scott Maxwell, Executive Director of Wounded Warriors Canada, commented, “Our goal is to help create trauma-informed work places for our public safety personnel. The Before Operational Stress program will equip Mosaic Emergency Response Team Members with important education and information to help protect themselves from the effects of operational stress. That said, we can’t do this alone. This partnership with Mosaic is helping us expand access to this important training – and is the definition of what it means to be #InThisTogether for mental health.”
The Wounded Warriors Canada Before Operational Stress (BOS) program is a group-based intervention program providing participants the opportunity to receive and offer support, in a group context, with issues related to operational stress. BOS has been clinically designed to provide theoretical, practical and experiential learning to enhance participants’ resilience and mental health as they continue to operate in their roles. It is a unique program that brings together cutting-edge clinical approaches with recognized scientific expertise to support psychological health and wellness. A key feature of BOS is developing the group dynamic because therapeutic change is enhanced when group members are supported together.
