I call the meeting to order.
Welcome, everyone, to meeting number 40 of the Standing Committee on Veterans Affairs. Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2), we are conducting a study of combat stress and its consequences on the mental health of veterans and their families.
Today from Canberra, Australia, on video conference, we have Lieutenant-Colonel Andrew Cohn, assistant director, mental health education and training. Am I correct?
Sir, I am Gary Schellenberger, and I'm the chair of the standing committee. Welcome.
If you'd like to make your presentation, we are joined with the rest of the committee. We'd like to hear your presentation, and if you can accept some questions after that, that'd be great.
