That’s being expanded to include attention, concentration, perception of reality, regulation of behaviour and emotions and verbal and non-verbal comprehension”.

We at OSI-CAN do not see PTSD or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder as a Disorder, we see it as an Injury you can recover from.  If you are suffering from the symptoms of an Occupational or Operational Stress Injury, then a PTSD or PTSI diagnosis is not required to get our help
