WINGS OF CHANGE
About Wings of Change
Welcome to Wings of Change - Peer Support.
We facilitate peer-led, confidential, solution-based discussions regarding operational stress injuries and mental health challenges public safety personnel and front line workers may encounter and how this affects them and their families.
All public safety personnel and front line workers (as well family members over 18 for our family meetings) are welcome to attend as often as they’d like and to participate in the discussion or to simply sit back and listen to what is shared.
We Refrain From
We do not participate in trauma-talk which is the discussion of details that are grotesque or intensely personal details surrounding an event. Those types of shares are best suited for the clinical setting. If trauma-talk occurs, the facilitator will mute/stop the speaker to help steer the conversation back to solution-based.
Wings of Change is a trauma informed organization, and we want all our participants to feel welcome, accepted and safe in this space.
The Wings of Change community is proudly diverse, with a wide range of experiences, perspectives and backgrounds all contributing to our success. We are deeply committed to building a safe and welcoming environment for everyone.
We respect each other’s use of pronouns, and refer to each other by these pronouns.
For the comfort of all participants, confidentiality is a fundamental component to Wings of Change’s attraction. We do not disclose identities or comments of participants.
However, we encourage participants to discuss and share outside of the meetings on personal terms in order to combat mental health stigma.
