Statement by Louise Bradley, President and CEO of the Mental Health Commission to mark Remembrance Day



OTTAWA, Nov. 10, 2017 /CNW/ - "On Remembrance Day, we recognize the sacrifice of Veterans killed in action and those wounded in the service of Canada, many living with the physical and mental scars of war. At the Mental Health Commission of Canada we are committed to improving the mental health of Veterans and their families.

While much work remains to be done, important advances have been made. It has been our privilege to collaborate with Veterans Affairs Canada over the years.

Most recently, we were honored to be part of the Veterans Affairs Health Advisory Group which helped develop a joint suicide prevention strategy for service members and Veterans. Service members are particularly vulnerable as they transition from active duty to civilian life and the joint nature of the strategy, unveiled this October, addresses a significant gap in supports. We were also pleased to work with Veterans Affairs to tailor the Mental Health First Aid program to address the needs of Veterans and the people who care for, and about, them.

On November 11, as the Mental Health Commission of Canada participates in the wreath laying at the national service on Parliament Hill, we renew our dedication to working toward better mental health for Veterans and their families."
