Nova Scotia Operational Stress Injury Clinic
Mental Health

The Operational Stress Injury (OSI) Clinic provides mental health services to Veterans, eligible members of the Canadian Forces (CF), RCMP members and former members, who have an OSI. Support is also available for families of clients of the OSI Clinic. 

Common types of OSI include:

  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Other anxiety disorders
  • Mood disorders
  • Substance use disorders

The OSI Clinic has a team of psychiatrists, psychologists, registered nurses and social workers. Together, the team works with clients to: 

  • Identify the OSI and understand how it affects the client’s life and wellbeing 
  • Develop a treatment plan that includes circle of care (e.g. family) 
  • Ensure continuity between services of the OSI Clinic and those provided in the community 
  • Connect and collaborate with community providers, VAC, CF, and RCMP

Please note: Telehealth (video conferencing) is available
