This measure uses the 2013 Life After Service Studies (LASS) survey data to describe the mental health of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) veterans. The LASS surveys collected data from former CAF members (Veterans) who were released from service from 1998. The surveys provide insight into the well-being of Canadian veterans in the areas of mental and physical health, employment, education, finances, life skills and knowledge, social integration and social environment.
