If you think you or someone you care about has post-traumatic stress disorder the best thing to do is talk to your doctor. Together you can decide which treatments, if any, would be best for you. In addition to talking to your family doctor, check out the resources below for more PTSD information.

Resources available in many languages:
*For each service on the right, if English is not your first language, say the name of your preferred language in English to be connected to an interpreter. More than 100 languages are available.
Crisis lines aren’t only for people in crisis. You can call for information on local services or if you just need someone to talk to. If you are in distress, call 310-6789 (do not add 604, 778 or 250 before the number) 24 hours a day to connect to a BC crisis line, without a wait or busy signal. The crisis lines linked in through 310-6789 have received advanced training in mental health issues and services by members of the BC Partners for Mental Health and Addictions Information.
