For Family Members
Because the health of Veterans, CF members and RCMP members is closely linked to the well-being of their loved ones Veterans Affairs Canada has established progressive and supportive policies that allow family members to use some services of the clinic.
You can meet with staff at the clinic to obtain information on OSIs and related health problems. This may assist you in coping with an OSI in your family or in identifying someone who may have one.
If your family member is currently being treated for an OSI, either at this OSI Clinic or with another provider, you may be eligible for supportive counseling to help with related family issues.
OSIs can have a serious impact on relationships. We provide couples therapy for clients whose relationships are being affected.
We also provide self-help literature for family members who wish to learn more about OSIs, related health problems, and other issues of concern.
