Dalton Associates offers First Responder organizations customized, comprehensive, and fully-integrated mental health and wellness solutions. Our customized mental health and wellness programming for First Responder organizations can include the following services.

Customized, Comprehensive, and Fully-Integrated Mental Health and Wellness Solutions

One Central Point of Care Available 24/7 With No Waitlist

Dalton Associates’ occupationally aware Care Management Team is the central “hub” of our First Responder mental health and wellness programming; a consistent partner to clients on their wellness journey from the first point of contact with the program, to the activation of services with regular check-ins and follow-up as agreed upon, until the client no longer requires or desires ongoing support.

Individualized Care Plans

The Care Manager will document the treatment plan in a Plan of Care, which is updated on an as-needed basis to reflect all the actions taken (e.g., making contact with other programs, connecting the client with a counsellor, scheduling assessments, etc.). This provides our clients with an opportunity to be actively engaged with the plan in place; tracking those services they are or have been engaged with during their time with the program.

Specialized Telephonic Crisis Support Available 24/7/365

Members who access the Program will have access to immediate, 24/7/365 telephonic crisis support through our Crisis Support Team. Our Crisis Support Team has experience supporting First Responders in distress, and have expertise in crisis de-escalation and risk management.

Rapid Access to Telephonic/Virtual Counselling

Masters-level mental health clinicians are available 8am through midnight, seven (7) days a week to support clients who are in distress and who are open to connect with a therapist at the time they’re connecting to the program. The therapist will support the client, helping them regulate and stabilize emotions, collaborate around safety plans, and identify strategies for next steps in that client’s individualized plan of care. The Rapid Access clinicians are also available for non-crisis situations where clients just want to talk things through with a clinician in their moment of need, or to receive clinical guidance regarding their wellness journey – we want to be sure that we catch people in their moment of need. Regardless of the reason for the connection with the Rapid Access clinician, they will support a seamless transition for the client with next steps in their wellness plan.
