Peer Support Groups
OSI-CAN provides Community-based Peer Support Groups for our target demographic; that of Military/Veteran members and Public Safety Personnel (Police, Fire Paramedics, Corrections, Healthcare). Our groups address the challenges of OSI/PTSI through the neutrality of safe spaces, and free, confidential, lived experience support. No diagnosis is required, just the courage to attend and find helpful information and resources.
