We are excited to launch the Trauma Services of Southwestern Ontario (TSSWO). We invite you to contact us at any time for any further information that you may need.
As you have probably read or heard in the news, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is going to be recognized as a work place injury in Ontario for first responders. Hopefully not too far behind this will be a change to WSIB legislation also doing the same.
Unfortunately many of our first responders (including front line mental health, corrections, hospital staff, admin and clinical) and veterans are not readily able to identify the symptoms of PTSD thus go on trying to manage day to day with an almost unmanageable illness. Several first responders and many combat veterans have taken their lives this year due to their struggle with PTSD. Click on the links below to learn more.
