Army Vet Is Walking Across Canada To Raise Awareness Around PTSD

Posted on Monday, July 17, 2017 13:01 PM

Trevor Sanderson is walking across Canada to raise awareness around low-income families, senior's, vets and first responders suffering from PTSD.

Sanderson is a former vet who also suffers from PTSD and says he grew up in poverty most of his life.

He says the federal government needs to do more to help those living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Sanderson says some vets suffering from PTSD aren't even allowed in government buildings because of the fear they'll have an episode.

He's a former army vet himself and was an alcoholic and very violent when he joined the army and was released after he was charged with assault causing bodily harm.

After four years of training to kill people, Sanderson says he wasn't sure what to do with his life and knows others out there are in the same situation.

Sanderson is in Saint John and has already made stops in Fredericton and Moncton.
