Who We Help

Mental Health Services for Military Members & Veterans

Trauma, addiction, and mental illness affect service members and veterans differently than they do civilians. We offer treatment programs tailored to your unique needs.

Leave Shame and Stigma at the Door

As a member of the Canadian Armed Forces or Veterans Affairs Canada, you’ve seen and done things that most civilians couldn’t imagine. The trauma you’ve experienced in the line of duty predisposes you to life-changing struggles with PTSD, addiction, depression, and anxiety.

When you’re immersed in a culture that holds valor in such high esteem, it can be difficult to admit you need help. And when you do want help, finding the right mental health services can be challenging. Most rehabilitation centres take a one-size-fits-all approach to mental health services, and fail to address service members’ distinct concerns and circumstances.

How We Help

You’ve served your country. Now, we’re here to serve you. EHN Canada offers trauma-informed treatment programs designed exclusively for veterans and military members. We take your military experience into account as we help you develop the skills you need to build the foundation for a successful, lasting recovery. Our evidence-based treatments address your unique struggles, including moral injury and occupational stress injury (OSI), as well as any associated substance use disorders.

While in treatment, you join the ranks of fellow service members and first responders who understand what you’re going through. They become your teammates and cheerleaders.

On your journey you’re guided by an interprofessional clinical team with extensive training and experience in trauma-informed treatment. Our medical experts enlist evidence-based approaches, like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), and cognitive processing therapy (CPT), to help you overcome PTSD, addiction, and accompanying mental health concerns.

Our Partnership with the Wounded Warriors Project

Not all wounds are visible. It’s why EHN Canada has partnered with Wounded Warriors Canada, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping veterans and active-duty service members living with PTSD.

Through this partnership, our clinical team receives specialized training to effectively treat active military service members, veterans and first responders including the innovative new occupational awareness training course, Introduction to Trauma Exposed Professionals. This course was clinically developed for healthcare workers who support trauma-exposed professionals to help them better understand the unique work, culture, and operational stressors of military service members.

Through this partnership, EHN Canada is proud to provide funding that ensures members across their military and first responder healthcare teams have access to the course. And together, we are creating an environment of compassion, resiliency, and hope for those who have dedicated their lives to serving Canadians.
