RESEARCH TOPIC: Experiences of loneliness and social isolation during the transition from Military to Veteran/civilian life among Canadian Armed Forces Veterans

Loneliness and social isolation have been recognized in the literature as being associated with adverse mental and physical health outcomes and premature death[1],[2]. Although the experience of loneliness and social isolation can be experienced by anyone, members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) who are transitioning to civilian life present a unique experience, requiring specific attention[3].

This research funding opportunity will support a 18-month project that aims to understand and address the experiences of loneliness and social isolation of both current members of the CAF who are about to transition into civilian life as well as CAF Veterans. Research projects may focus on the experience of loneliness and social isolation of CAF members and Veterans as well as investigating protective factors and/or supporting programs/services.

MHRC and the Atlas Institute invite you to carefully read the attached Call for Proposals for grant eligibility and criteria. We have also included a Budget template in Word to assist you in your application.
