On 28th April 2016, Police, firefighters, paramedics, and members of the military joined forces to launch a provincial tour to raise awareness of Post-Traumatic Stress (PTSD) and mental health injuries which emergency services and military members have a greater risk of developing. The Tour of Honour will visit more than 38 communities across British Columbia over 10 weeks to bring local awareness to emergency services and military personnel and their families about PTSD and Honour House.
“Suffering from any form of serious illness or critical incident is a very stressful event in anyone’s life,” said Al DeGenova, President of Honour House Society. “Consider a person who’s day to day job involves some of the most tense and stressful situations imaginable and then include this kind of personal event for them or a member of their family. Providing a free, safe, comfortable and relaxing home away from home for some of our bravest Canadians is the very least that we can do,” said DeGenova.
