Recent Veterans have a higher prevalence of mental health problems than the general Canadian population, earlier-era Veterans, and the serving population;
First responders are twice as likely than the average Canadian to suffer from PTSD; and
Veterans, first responders and their families currently lack adequate resources and services to address mental health issues.
We, the undersigned, the citizens of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to support Irene Mathyssen’s motion M-61 which commits the Government to prioritizing and supporting the mental health of military service men and women, veterans, first responders, retired and volunteer first responders, and their families.
