True Patriot Love is planning an Algonquin Adventure this July that will bring together military servicemembers, Veterans & frontline healthcare workers for a journey of healing through canoeing & hiking in the Canadian wilderness. The adventure will support mental health & well-being, recognizing that servicemembers & healthcare workers may be facing common mental health challenges that have been magnified due to the pandemic.
We are honoured to receive significant investment into the mental health of our military and Veteran community. This investment will enable new and innovative ways to improve the well-being of Veterans and their families.
The 3rd Annual Captain Nichola Goddard Leadership Roundtable focussed on a critical leadership attribute needed now more than ever: leading in complex and ambiguous environments. The cross-Canada event featured a keynote address from Brigadier General Krista Brodie followed by interactive breakout discussions facilitated by remarkable women from the Canadian Armed Forces and hosted by leaders from the business sector.
We are Canada’s leading organization supporting military members, Veterans and their families.
Those who have and continue to serve in the Canadian military have volunteered to protect and defend the country and its citizen, which is arguably one of the most physically and emotionally challenging career paths. There are many sacrifices inherent to a military career and difficulties can often continue beyond service.
True Patriot Love raises awareness around the challenges of service and funds programs for servicemembers, Veterans and families that support their well-being, enable rehabilitation and recovery from injury, assist the children and spouses of those who serve, and promote re-integration into communities following service.
Sergeant Brad Jones participated in the ASIST program through the 4 Wing Military Family Resource Centre Society. The program helped Brad intervene when a few of his colleagues were at risk of taking their own lives, and allowed him to get help for his own mental health challenges.
