Undiagnosed PTSD- where to start
« on: January 05, 2019, 22:07:07 »
My husband and I are both veterans. I suspect he has undiagnosed PTSD. We’ve talked about it lots but his one attempt at getting help (counselling) a few years ago didn’t work out. Just not the right person for him and he’s very reluctant to try the same route. But he needs help. What do you recommend as a good starting point to get some help and resources for treatment and proper diagnosis.

My father started with OSSIS, excellent program and they set him up with VAC and got him the treatment he needed. Its staffed by vets so the person you're speaking with can talk the lingo and relate.

That's where they sent me to start. OSSIS
