Toronto, ON -- (November 6, 2017) - Homewood Health will honour military women and their families by sponsoring the 9th Annual True Patriot Love Toronto Tribute Dinner on Thursday, November 9th. The True Patriot Love Foundation is a registered charity dedicated to harnessing the passion Canadians feel for military and veteran families on November 11th and finding ways to express it throughout the year.
Homewood Health is deeply committed to the health and wellness of our soldiers, veterans and their families explained President and CEO of Homewood Health, Jagoda Pike.
“Every day we see so many people struggling with the impact of trauma,” Pike said. “Supporting the True Patriot Love Foundation is just one more way we live out our commitment as mental health treatment providers.”
True Patriot Love is building on the knowledge that there can be a cumulative effect when individuals are exposed to multiple incidents that are emotionally damaging.
“When a military service person has been in duty for several years, the amount of trauma that they are exposed to could leave them at risk of developing a mental health issue,” Pike said. “We want to support True Patriot Love in raising awareness about the risks service women and men undertake, and help build community support for them and their families.
