Mental Health & Wellness

Every day, Ambulance Paramedics and Emergency Dispatchers are on the frontlines of prehospital care in BC. We deal with trauma, tragedy, and sometimes, inspiring acts of perseverance and determination.

Staggering data rates suggests that over 30% of all paramedics and dispatchers in BC are currently off work with mental health and wellness injuries, or are continuing to work while getting treatment.  APBC continues to advocate for the acknowledgement, funding, and ongoing support of paramedics and dispatchers in BC.
