About the OSI Connect Application
OSI Connect is a free mental health learning and self-management mobile app developed to help OSI patients and their families understand the nature of operational stress injuries (OSIs) and to provide help through the OSI Clinic Network across Canada. The resources on OSI Connect address challenges including post-traumatic stress and triggers, depression, anger, sleep problems, substance abuse, stress management and more.
Developed by the Royal Ottawa OSI Clinic with the support of Veterans Affairs Canada, this app is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod, BlackBerry and Android devices. OSI Connect is a regularly updated, information rich, interactive mobile application. There are assessments, videos and clear information for Veterans and others with an OSI, including how to get an OSI clinic appointment.
New online operational stress injury resource for caregivers of Canadian Armed Forces members and Veterans
The Operational Stress Injury Resource for Caregivers is an online, self-directed tool designed for caregivers and families of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members or Veterans living with an operational stress injury, or OSI.
This tool includes information on operational stress injuries and their impacts on the family, and how to support a CAF member/Veteran through the treatment and recovery process. It will teach its users practical skills including self-care, problem-solving and stress management techniques, for managing the challenges of the caregiving role.
This online educational tool is the result of an innovative partnership between Veterans Affairs Canada, Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services, and the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Care Group (The Royal).
The bilingual Operational Stress Injury Resource for Caregivers is free to use, and there is no need to register to use it.
