“I still have work to do, but I know what I can do to try to move ahead now. I would hope this opportunity is offered to more vets. They don’t need to suffer for 30 years and watch their careers, family and life slowly fall apart. No person should have to suffer this in isolation, confusion and silence.”

– Doug B., 2014 Program Graduate

10-Day Programs
All programs run for 10 days spread over 3 weekends within the dates specified, not the entire two months. This gives participants the time to practice new skills in the real world, as well as take a minimal amount of time off from work.
Attendance is free for our Vets.
All expenses (Psychologists’ fees, room & board, and travel) are covered by the VTN through generous donations from other organizations and the Canadian Public.

If you have a claim with Veterans Affairs, we can also process claims for you to have them cover your fees.
