Hello. Thank you for meeting with us today.
As a scholar at the Medical Research Council of Canada, I had the opportunity to work in the neuroscience field and to study various structures of the nervous system. I did research on neurodegenerative disorders and stress, in particular post-traumatic stress, but also other types of stress. I also did research on depression, schizophrenia and psychiatric disorders.
Through the Project for Life, we offer individuals suffering from post-traumatic stress and their families access to all the resources under one roof. This starts with the medical file, which contains the information about the diagnosis and explains the different therapeutic approaches used. We include blood tests that quantitatively measure the entry and exit of information in the brain and that help distinguish between all conditions, including diagnoses related to anxiety or depression, cognitive disorders or psychiatric disorders. Based on the result, we can look at the situation with the doctor and the individual, and start providing care.
To follow our program, individuals must understand that they've experienced a difficult situation, in this case post-traumatic stress. They must accept this fact in order to receive care, find a way to reintegrate into society and get back the quality of life they had before and they had chosen. We're talking about an integrated approach that groups together everything under one roof and that's based on the medical file and the family, meaning the spouse and children.
