Leadership Statement

The Encompas Mental Health Wellness Program arose from a partnership between the Ontario Provincial Police Association (OPPA) and Dalton Associates in response to the OPPA’s concern for the mental health and wellness of their members.

The OPPA’s goal was to work with an organization towards the development of a wrap-around, cohesive, and comprehensive mental health support system for their members; one that would have a significant positive impact on a members’ access to care, the delivery of the right treatment for the right individual, and ultimately a positive effect on the members’ well-being.

What grew from this collaboration is Encompas; a First Responder-tailored mental health and wellness service that not only provides the direct and culturally-relevant assessment and treatment services, but also ensures that the pathway to mental healthcare is barrier-free and supports sustainable mental wellness for all those who access the program.
