About The Royal


Funded by Veterans Affairs Canada, the Centre of Excellence (CoE) on PTSD was established in 2019 to provide better access to information, research, tools and expertise on post-traumatic stress disorder and related mental health problems and illnesses. The goal of the CoE is to create knowledge networks with researchers, service providers, veterans and their families across Canada to increase expertise on military and veteran mental health, suicide prevention and substance use disorders. The CoE will create new knowledge on veteran mental health treatments that work and place it directly into the hands of mental health professionals and others working with veterans on a daily basis. The CoE will share evidence-based treatment protocols and best practices among the Veterans Affairs Canada network of Operational Stress Injury Clinics, the Canadian Forces Health Services, and with mental health professionals across the country.
