The story of one man’s journey from idealistic youth to hardened veteran, Lieutenant-Colonel Stéphane Grenier returned to Canada from Rwanda haunted by his experiences. Facing post-traumatic stress disorder and an archaic military medical establishment, he spent ten years confronting its approach to the mental health system.

Coining the term “Operational Stress Injury” to allow the military to see mental injury in the same light as a physical wound, he founded the Operational Stress Injury Social Support program that provides help for mentally injured soldiers and veterans.

Since retiring from the military in 2012, his ground breaking approach has been adopted by civilian society. Working with the Mental Health Commission of Canada, he founded Mental Health Innovations, which delivers Grenier’s direct “walk the talk” method to improve mental well being in government and business.

About the Authors:

Stéphane Grenier is a veteran of the Canadian Military who retired as a Lieutenant Colonel. The recipient of a Meritorious Service Cross by the Governor General, he was recently awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws by the University of Guelph. He lives in Vals-des-Monts, Québec.

Adam Montgomery, PhD, is an historian of medicine and military history and the author of The Invisible Injured.
