Keith Steeves didn’t realize the insomnia, nightmares and anxiety attacks that plagued him following his return from active duty in war-torn Bosnia in 1993 actually had a name. And he certainly wasn’t aware of the help he would find within his own community.
Three years ago, Steeves was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, a stress-related condition common to military personnel who have served in the line of fire. Part of his treatment plan would have required monthly trips to a specialist in Fredericton, however, thanks to Telehealth video conferencing facilities located at the Albert County Health & Wellness Centre, he was able to meet with his doctor without the expense of travel.
