Blue Line, The Podcast: Public safety personnel and mental health with Dr. Jody Burnett

April 5, 2023  By Brittani Schroeder

Public safety personnel (PSP) face traumatic, challenging experiences on a day-to-day basis that can be extremely damaging to their mental health. Unfortunately, women—and specifically those who are PSP—are not getting the mental health support they need and often find it difficult to find a solution that works for their lifestyle and work environment.

In this episode of Blue Line, The Podcast, editor Brittani Schroeder was joined by Dr. Jody Burnett, a Registered Doctoral Psychologist with the Saskatchewan College of Psychologists and a High Performance Consultant who has been providing service to the general public, specializing in service provision to first responders and public safety personnel for the past 20 years. In this conversation, they spoke about Dr. Burnett’s research on women in public safety and what mental health supports are out there for all public safety personnel.

*Please note, PSPNET is free of charge to all active public safety personnel, it is confidential, a diagnosis is not needed and there are no backlogs or wait times.
