Call for Reference Group Members

The Centre of Excellence on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Related Mental Health Conditions (the Centre) is seeking to build strong community networks to create the best possible supports and services for Veterans, first responders, and their families.

The Centre is designed to be a “Network of Networks” with Veteran, Families, Service Providers, and Research Reference Groups and a central advisory council advising, promoting, and supporting its work.

We are currently looking for Reference Group members through an application process open until September 14, 2020.

How it works
Reference group positions are voluntary and the role of the Reference Group is to provide the Centre with strategic advice and expertise on specific initiatives and priority areas, while also serving as ambassadors for the Centre.

Reference Groups will be inclusive of diverse perspectives and backgrounds. In establishing membership of the groups, the Centre is seeking First Nations, Inuit, and Métis representation, geographic diversity, sexual and gender diversity, persons with disabilities, ethno-cultural and racialized diversity, and French-speaking Canadians.

Lived and living experience with mental health conditions is a strong asset in the selection of Reference Group members, and is valued as much as technical expertise.

Please share widely within your networks, thank you.
