For more info see link http://www.tema.ca/2011.html
Here is a brief overview from the site:
The men and women of our emergency and military services see tragic events every day. They witness human suffering up close and it sometimes becomes very difficult to cope with the aftermath.
The aftermath sometimes means that they will suffer with lasting memories that just won't go away. Recalling the smells, remembering the sounds and reliving the witnessed events sometimes haunt these men and women for life.
Through research, education, training, and through the provision of peer and psychological support, we aim to help these men and women when they need it most.
