Atlas brings Veterans, Families, service providers and research partners together to create, gather and share knowledge on Veteran and Family mental health. We help to integrate this information into practice to improve treatment and support.

Canadian Armed Forces and Royal Canadian Mounted Police Veterans serve selflessly in the face of adversity and danger. They give their country everything, fulfilling missions with grit, loyalty and determination.

Canadians need to understand the physical, emotional and mental stressors that result from service. The onus of recovery should not fall on Veterans and their Families only. They have long advocated for access to safe, meaningful care and supports for their long-term health and well-being.

Atlas Institute for Veterans and Families exists because of this need for action. We work with Veterans, Families, service providers and researchers to bridge the divide between research and practice so Veterans and their Families can get the best possible mental health care and supports.

Veterans and their Families are tired and frustrated. They want more than the status quo. We acknowledge this truth.

Our research is rooted in the experiences of Veterans and Families. Through our studies, Reference Groups, Advisory Councils and other networks, the people we serve inform what research we undertake and the information we share.
