Info on PTSD
PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) is a mental illness. PTSD is often involved with exposure to traumatic events that can involve serious injury, death threats, and death. This mental illness can be linked to ongoing emotional trauma, such as abuse or many other reasons.
Currently, there is no coordinated federal-provincial strategy that would expand the scope of support to ensure long-term solutions for those suffering from PTSD. Bill C-211 is what will ensure that we work toward a long-term set of best practices, statistical data and consistent terminology and education when dealing with PTSD and occupational stress injuries
