OSI Connect is a free mobile app for operational stress injury (OSI) patients and their families. This interactive app is a mental health learning and self-management tool. It helps explain the nature of OSIs and provides access to the OSI Clinic Network across Canada.
The resources on OSI Connect address the challenges of living with an OSI. These can include post-traumatic stress and triggers, depression, anger, sleep problems and substance abuse.
The app also talks about managing stress. OSI Connect contains assessments, videos and clear information for veterans and others with an OSI. It is regularly updated and includes information about how to get an OSI clinic appointment. The app was developed by the Royal Ottawa OSI Clinic with the support of Veterans Affairs Canada. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod, BlackBerry and Android devices.
