First Responders and Emergency Workers Support
Breath Control is grateful to have been added to the First Responders Health Directory, British Columbia’s first mental health directory specifically geared to first responders. First Responder Health provides accessible, culturally competent mental healthcare support for all public safety personnel and their loved ones.
We have completed advanced training in understanding first responder trauma and through our partnership with First Responders Health we apply evidence-based treatment services that build on the strength and resiliency of any client from police officer to paramedic to any emergency workers family member.
We are able to cater to complex shift rotations by offering an easy and convenient to use the secure telemedicine platform. No need for you or your family members to leave the comfort of your own home or community.
We are well aware that first responders and emergency workers are already incredibly resilient individuals, you have to be just to earn the position to begin with.
The Breath Control Therapy program has been designed by a first responder for first responders. Founder of Breath Control, Tyler Huston is a nurse, paramedic and has been certified as an Occupationally Aware Therapist. Tyler has collaborated with paramilitary professionals to design a program that works to strengthen and heal the body, mind and spirit without the use of prescription drugs.
We have collaborated with Firefighters, Police Officers, Canadian Forces, US Navy SEALS, Royal Danish Frogman Corps, Paramedics, Psychologists and Physicians gathering wisdom based on real life experiences to develop the Breath Control Therapy program.
