About

We run 10-day Transition Programs to struggling Veterans across Canada, delivering much-needed group therapy for depression, PTSD, and suicidal thoughts.

Our teams consist of specialized Psychologists working together with Veteran program gradautes, which attracts many Veterans have never sought professional help or have rejected other available services.

Graduates of our programs report life-altering changes, reconnecting with family, community, and career. In 18 years, not a single Veteran who has gone through our program has committed suicide.

Since many Veterans move back to their hometowns after leaving service, a major cost for us is flying them in to receive treatment. Your Aeroplan contributions will be spent either on bringing them to our clinicians, or flying our clinicians in to them.
