Resiliency in the Canadian military:
lessons from leading women
Date & Time:
October 8, 2020
12 p.m. EST
Military service comes with the inherent possibilities of physical and mental injury, relocation, separation from family, and potential challenges with civilian integration following service. Many who serve have successfully managed these realities and can offer valuable lessons on developing resiliency and coping through difficulties such as mental illness.
In recognition of Mental Illness Awareness Week (October 4 – 10), True Patriot Love will host a live virtual fireside chat on October 8 that will include unique and valuable insights into resiliency from inspiring women within the military and Veteran community.
The conversation is in honour of Captain Nichola Goddard, a brave artillery officer who at the age of 26 became the first women soldier to die in a combat role. Since her untimely passing, she has become a beacon of courage and resiliency, and the Captain Nichola Goddard Fund in her name benefits programs that support the health and well-being of servicewomen, Veteran women and their families. The chat will also draw upon the topic of resiliency discussed in the For Her Country podcast, which was established in Capt. Goddard’s honour.
This masterclass will provide attendees with valuable lessons that are universal and applicable to our everyday lives, particularly amid a challenging global pandemic. Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask a question in advance, which may be answered during the live fireside chat.
