Mississauga firefighters first in Ontario to receive new mental-health training

Firefighters in Mississauga are the first in the province to benefit from a new program that aims to help first responders cope with the impact of post-traumatic stress disorder. The Road to Mental Readiness (R2MR) program held its first training session with firefighters learning how to recognize signs of mental-health issues and work-related stress in themselves and their colleagues.
