>The VTN offers a program to assist Military Veterans in thier transition to civilian life. It provides tools to help them better communicate and manage both home and work related relationships and responsibilities. It has a strong trauma portion, dedicated to helping Vets identify sources of OSI/PTSD symptoms and bring them under better control. There is also some support for future planning and how to set and achieve goals. To note, while we are mandated for CAF/RCMP we do accept police/first responders when a program has a space not filled by a military Vet.
