In Canada, of the veterans who are clients of Veteran Affairs Canada, each year, approximately 40% will suffer from an operational stress injury. Of these, half the cases will take the form of severe Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. By 2016, at least 6,500 veterans will suffer a mental health problem diagnosed by a health professional. These figures do not include those who are not diagnosed, do not seek professional help or die by their own hand without a diagnosis. For many veterans, the war does not end when they go home.
