Wounded Warriors Canada releases television ad
Wounded Warriors Canada, a not-for-profit organization based in Whitby, ON, has begun a television campaign called "Invisible Injuries." The public service announcement, developed by Ossington Creative of Toronto, is intended to raise awareness of conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder and their effects on armed forces members, veterans and families. The 60-second commercial features Canadian military personnel and family members describing their experiences with these conditions.
"With Remembrance Day now behind us, it is important for Canadians to remember and support our ill and injured Canadian Armed Forces members, veterans and their families, however they can, 365 days a year," said Scott Maxwell, executive director of Wounded Warriors Canada. "It is our hope that this PSA will bring increased awareness to the significant impact operational stress injuries like PTSD have on our veterans and their families."
