Veterans Transition Network COVID-19 Response Featured

Veterans Transition Network COVID-19 Response Veterans Transition Network COVID-19 Response

vtnOver the the last few weeks, our entire country has been forced to temporarily adjust to a new reality due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

This difficult time has been a reminder that our paraprofessionals, our clinicians and Canada’s veterans do not give up easily, and are willing to push forward in the face of adversity. This has been amazing to witness. Thank you all for your dedication.

The unfortunate reality is that the government guidelines put in place to combat the spread of COVID-19 are now too restrictive for us to reliably run our programs and support the veterans we serve. Our medical system and government are advising us not to gather, travel, or connect with others too closely. These guidelines are becoming more rigid every day, and may soon become restrictions. 

Because of this, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our programs set to start in March and April. We want to ensure that all participants who are affected are supported to the best of our ability, and know that they are first in line for the next available programs, which will be scheduled to begin as soon as pandemic restrictions are lifted.

We know that the social distancing and isolation measures rightly put in place to combat COVID-19 are having unavoidable negative impacts on the mental health of veterans, in fact, all Canadians. Productive outlets like work, hobbies and exercise are diminished; tensions are higher, and many of the support services that people rely upon are now far less accessible.

With that in mind, our team is hard at work developing an initiative to provide remote support to veterans, using our established network of clinicians and peer-supporters and graduates across Canada. We are preparing to move quickly to meet this rising need, and more information will follow soon about how.

Until then, we wish good health to all of you and your loved ones. Please remember that you are: 

Nunquam Unus
(Never Alone)

Dr Paul Whitehead – Clinical Director
Oliver Thorne – Executive Director

 We currently live in a time where social distancing and isolation have become more important than ever before.

Now while we can't run our programs as we usually do, the VTN is looking at a new model that we can hopefully implement to support our network of graduates, paraprofessionals, and their peers through remote communications.

As always, this would not be possible without the continued support of all of our fantastic donors.
