Share your story

One of the common things we heard from the soldiers and veterans we spoke with is that sharing their story has helped them in their healing process – they want to encourage others to break their silence.

If you would like to share your story of dealing with mental health issues and PTSD with Global News please contact us using the form below. PLEASE do not use this contact form if you are in crisis, call 911 or refer to the list of resources available below.
