The Veterans Transition Network: Helping Heroes Heal
The Veterans Transition Network (VTN) is the only independent, non-government organization of its kind in Canada. Every Veteran in need who participates receives at least 100 hours of services from specialized Psychologists and leaves with concrete plans for rebuilding their lives, according to VTN.
VTN programs and courses provide a life-long connection with peers, communication skills, self-maintenance techniques like coping skills, and future planning to ensure all veterans can live a quality of life that they are proud of.
"UBC did a research study on our delivery showing that everyone who completed the course had large improvements in their quality of life in areas like reduced depression, anxiety, and discovering they didn’t have to avoid certain people or parts of their life anymore. Our programs have a 98% completion rate, one of the highest in the world," assures graduates of VTN on their website.
If this sounds like something you or a loved one would be interested in, do not hesitate to reach out to the Veterans Transition Network! VTN understands what fellow Veterans are going through and are here to help you and your loved ones live a fulfilled life with purpose.

"Over a decade later, graduates from our first few groups are still volunteering their time today. That’s the power of successful transition and the strength of the connections forged between our Vets and their communities," reads the VTN website.
VTN programs take place in private locations, co-led by graduates who are Veterans themselves and understand the challenges with the transition that many Veterans face.
These programs are facilitated by psychologists & counselors who have received specialized training from VTN in military issues. Their charitable programs are backed by university research and 22 years of experience.
