Pierre’s testimonial

Pierre, a former soldier, experienced the war in Bosnia. This war, which took place in the early 1990s, disrupted many lives, including his own. Describing himself as a sporty and dynamic person, Pierre tells us about what happened after his return from the mission. He tells us how long it took him to recognize his problems.

He is now in therapy to treat his post-traumatic stress disorder and is a volunteer with the Canadian Forces Operational Stress Injury Social Support Program to use his life experience for the benefit of members of the military in need. With great maturity, he tells us where he stands today in his journey.
