Stéphane Grenier

Retired Lieutenant-Colonel, Canadian Forces; Mental Health Innovator, Leader, Speaker and Author of After The War

Stéphane Grenier was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression after his return from Rwanda in 1995. In 2001, he coined the term Operational Stress Injury (OSI) and conceived, developed, implemented, and managed a government-based national peer-support program. Grenier is now an innovative consultant, keynote speaker and thought leader on Mental Health in the workplace and the community.

Grenier has been recognized for his transformational leadership style, commended for his collaborative efforts and outstanding leadership, specifically during the post war humanitarian disasters in Rwanda, and was awarded a Meritorious Service Cross by the Governor General of Canada for his work in the field of mental health and awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws degree by the University of Guelph.

In 2018, he was appointed to the Order of Canada by the Governor General, an honour he accepts on behalf of the thousands of Canadians who believe that it is possible to transform our mental health system and who work tirelessly each day towards this goal.
