About Us

The MacDonald Franklin Operational Stress Injury (OSI) Research Centre is a national and international leader in research on military and Veteran mental health. The Centre’s primary mission is to improve the mental health and well-being of Veterans with OSIs through clinical and neuroscience research. The Centre fosters and enhances collaboration among clinicians and researchers, and maintains our commitment to hear from those we serve by including Veteran and Veteran family representatives on our Advisory Council. The Research Centre collaborates directly with St. Joseph’s Health Care London’s Operational Stress Injury (OSI) Clinic, which provides specialized services to those experiencing mental health challenges as a result of their operational service.
