Auditor General’s report identifies serious deficiencies in treating RCMP mental health issues

PIPSC expresses its solidarity and support for members of the RCMP who are experiencing difficulty accessing front-line mental health services.

The Professional Institute applauds federal Auditor General Michael Ferguson’s recent report into the state of mental health support for members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

The report is very timely, coming out only days after the Canadian Mental Health Association’s 66th annual Mental Health Week.

As the Institute prepares to welcome civilian members of the RCMP in the months ahead, we urge Canada’s national police force to redouble its efforts to ensure its officers and staff get the help they need, when they need it.
